Antigone Michalakopoulou was trained as an architect before committing to fine arts in Athens (ASFA), London (St-Martins) and Ghent (KASK). In her work she combines very different media such as video, performance, drawing, photography and installation art, investigating how our perception constitutes our identity. Her latest project Geographia aims to rediscover the boundaries between our mental space, personal space and the social space that surrounds it, in interaction with the audience. Starting from a round table format, philosophical and poetic questions about identity, memory, place, time, boundaries and landscape compose an imaginary voyage that gradually evolves in a series of one-on-one interviews and a walk. In this way, Geographia unfolds as a poetical network of encounters that generates consciousness of the many relations between our self and the environment.
