About
Klitsa Antoniou

Although displacement and dislocation in the past years, has been a recurring subject matter in my work, in my most recent projects I allowed the full resonance of this theme to engage and eventually raise a number of inquiries relating to the ways Ι as an artist could approach the tension between the aporetic visibility or invisibility of border-crossing and the fluid or mobile zones of crisis; an excellent paradigm of this being the Mediterranean: a particularly neuralgic border zone, in which multiple and heterogeneous crossings are performed and intertwined.
My visual work is testifying a topos, a transcultural space, attractive in its diversity, but also confusing in its dynamism, charged with history but also with conflicts between the different cultures and religions, a place where memory defines the people and invokes the silent but excruciating forces exercised on its shores.
