About The Artwork

Contemplating on a space which could perfectly fit a human body and provide comfort and safety. The result is quite the opposite, a claustrophobic image which reminds more of a coffin. Part of the collection "The Poetics of Space" (I have always been interested in spaces in dreams (rooms, labyritnhs, passages etc) and my research lead me to Gaston Bachellard's "The poetics of Space". I found in that book many images, symbols and thougths I had been using in my work and in my fantasies since I was a child. Shells, nests, connected rooms, caves and shelters are some of the spaces that inspire me.)

Andromachi Giannopoulou was born in Australia. She went to school in Athens, Greece, and studied Painting in Athens School of Fine Arts. She was awarded a scholarship for studies in Art and Design from the State Scholarship Foundation, and studied Graphic Design and Communication at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London. She lives in Athens and works as an art teacher. Her work is the result of a search for the nature of personal experience, by exploring the boundaries between "real life" and memory and on the other hand between "real life" and dream. The border between sleep and alertness, repetitive dreams and space in dreams are some of the elements that fascinate her. It seems that all too often those images that emerge from the subconscious, revolve around a common axis which is the oppression of female sexuality. However she works without an obvious theme, letting the images and feelings reveal all those inevitable distortions of perception.
