About Penelope Vlassopoulou

Multidisciplinary artist, whose current work "Metamorphosis" explores the poetic potential of urban elements and the city as a link to common human experience. Originating in her home city of Athens the project evolved in dialogue with diverse urban environments including Berlin, Germany, Belgrade, Serbia and Chicago, USA, returning to its point of origin with the intervention "no water" tracing a link between Greece's historical past and the country's current predicament. The latest installments, "Metamorphosis/Montreal" and "Metamorphosis/In transit" explore the notions of time and landscape through the form of the sequence.
