Aliki Panagiotopoulou lives in Athens, Greece. She works across a variety of media (drawing, photography, film, text, ceramics and found objects) which she then assembles into precarious arrangements. During her residency she worked on a new text-based piece for an exhibition in Athens. She also created an evening of readings and interventions in the Sol LeWitt studio, in collaboration with visiting curator Helena Papadopoulos and writer Quinn Latimer.

Of course there are no drawers, the objects have been laid bare on a table, a table that seems surgical. . . . Their presence tells a story. A story that rhymes and twists words with pictures with meanings into a pale plait.  A story that does not reveal but complicates. . . . The secrets will not give up until in a dream. – Email from MC.

Her most recent exhibition, Drawers at Radio Athènes (Athens, 2018) was part of the project A BOOK AFFAIR, organised in partnership with the Goethe-Institut. To read a Frieze magazine interview about this exhibition, between Aliki Panagiotopoulou and the writer Quinn Latimer, please click here.
