about the author

Eleni Kolliopoulou is a media artist (performance, video, installations) particularly interested in the intersection between performance and philosophy. I studied at the University Kapodistriaka of Athens in the Department of Methodology, History and Theory of Science (1998 -2003, BA). In 2007 I moved to Turin (Italy) where I attended Philip Radice school of Physical Theater for one year. There I studied contemporary dance, dance theater and butoh dance, taking part in several public group performances. Between 2008 and 2013 I completed my BA and MA degree at the Academy of Fine Arts of Turin, visiting the Hochschuele Burg Gibiechestein Halle an der Saale as an Erasmus student in 2011-12. Since 2016, I am pursuing a practice based PhD in time-based art at Ulster University (Derry, Magee Campus) with a project proposal that concerns the interaction among body, space and objects.
