If I were you, I would call me us

How can we create an image of us, an image of “we”, that breathes, talks, moves, and possibly walks together out to the public space?

Deriving material from our own “dreams” this workshop will explore possibilities for collective bodies. (90min)

Open to all students, places limited. Register here

Chryssa Tsampazi works in performance, video and installation. Her work creates situations that expose the contradictions of particular economic, social and political dynamics of a location, often in relationship to identity, gender and class. To this aim, she has tapped conventions of conceptual art practice and theater, where directing takes the form of a set of instructions.

Tsampazi studied Theater at Drama School of Athens (GR) before receiving an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (IL). Her work has been shown at Sullivan Galleries, Chicago (IL); Betty Rymer Gallery, Chicago; Chicago Cultural Center; Fallout Gallery, Minneapolis (MN); Athens Biennial, Athens, (GR) Art-Athina, Athens (GR); Bios Centre Athens, Athens (GR); Sophiensaele, Berlin (D). She is the co-founder of the performance group ShiftyTongue together with the visual artist Vassiliea Stylianidou.
