Interdisciplinary / Installation
Martha Sakellariou is a visual artist who employs interdisciplinary, collaborative and public engagement practices to create site-specific multimedia installations that include performances, interventions and actions. She works with a variety of media such as video, audio, edibles, textiles, sculpture, paintings and prints.
Her practice encompasses inhabited spaces, structures of living, objects and visual storytelling in an ongoing investigation that explores themes on home, life rituals, domesticity and identity. As well as reacting to her personal life and circumstances she is interested in the way individuals and communities respond to experiences associated with urban and suburban spaces and she engages concepts that embrace both politics and aesthetics.
Martha has exhibited and curated art projects on independent and collaborative platforms internationally. She obtained her Master’s in Fine Art printmaking from the Royal College of Art in London UK and her BFA in painting from the National Athens School of Fine Art, Greece. She was born in Athens, lived and worked in London for seventeen years and moved to California in 2014.
