Nina Papaconstantinou

Nina Papaconstantinou was born in Athens, Greece, where she lives and works. She studied Greek Literature at the University of Athens (1992) and Visual Arts -Drawing at Camberwell College of Arts, London (2001). The extensive transformations of the body of texts, which the artist attempts through the practice of drawing, by copying, tracing, inscribing, piercing, enlarging, scattering and assembling texts, and manipulating illustrations from fairy tales and short stories, are suggestive of her reflections on narrative and fiction, communication and its concealment, trace and gesture, time and memory, language and, through it, imagery.  Tina Pandi, curator, EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece. opens in a new window
