Calliopi Beku

Artist Statement

I started with sculpture at the Athens School of Fine Arts and soon got involved with time-based media. I make films, sculptures, photography, and drawing.

My work is based on experiential observation and emerges organically through research. The enigmatic world of animals has been the basis of a long-term study which led to the short film 'Humans', and the photobook 'Animae'.  This study defined the main theme of my work, as it has focused thematically on the relationship between nature and man and morphologically on the search for a narrative form that reflects the way it arises: the experience. At the core of my research are issues of identity. I explore ways the environment to which the individual belongs reflects parts of its identity.
