art STUDIO





3 137  is a Greek artists’ space who is running a series of events under the title What do you do for a living . I was invited to create a speakeasy bar for a night. My bar was named art STUDIO (STUDIO is the sign outside Athenian brothels) and the password to get in was “Don’t Quit Your Day Job”. What I did for the event was an immediate representation of my everyday life in London, creating a happening where multitasking (and failing) was the main idea. I was the bar woman, the DJ, the exhibiting artist, and I had created a Menu/price list selling drinks, art performances, socialising and services of sexual nature.






Do You Hit Girls?
performance


 

In Do You Hit Girls? I invited a male opponent to participate in a Kick-Boxing fighting performance. It was an aggressive fight, between two people of similar weight and similar training experience, in which I tried to explore the strengths and the limits of the/my female body. I wanted to raise questions relating to consent, boundaries and sex segregation in sports, challenging the social taboo of violence against women by adding the factors of consent, sport’s rules, and a predetermined time and space for it to happen. It took place at Tempting Failure festival of performance in 2018.

Very Open Studio





Very Open Studio, is a happening made for the Open Studios weekend, at Euroart Studios, a complex housing naive artists, with a soft spot for realistic portraits, craftsmen and decorative artists. During the Open Studios, I blocked my studio door, sitting behind a desk, informing the visitors that in order to get in, they had to submit an application outlining their intentions, a short bio and highlight their contribution to my studio. After assessing their application I rejected everyone but a few friends, stamping WE REGRET TO INFORM YOU and denying entrance.
