Kallirroi Ioannidou

Kallirroi Ioannidou lives and works in Berlin Germany. Her preoccupation in life rhythms and the trans- formation of matter is tangible in her work-ing process across drawing, painting and sculpture in a non-hierarchical way. Her vivid visual narratives expand from one medium to the other with no linear narrative, no delimited focal point, and no attempt to draw clean conclusions. Through intuitive and subconscious associative processes, Kallirroi Ioannidou is interested in asking questions regarding the essence of contemporary human condition. The artist is concerned with societal mechanisms and interrogates the hurdles, attributions, expectations, and prejudices that most of us must deal with in our daily lives.

Kallirroi Ioannidou studied at the University of Fine Arts and graduated with a Meisterschüler diploma in 2021. In 2018 she received the Schulz Stübner Recognition Award and in 2022 she received the Udk Art Award. Her pieces have been shown at numerous solo (Galerie Burster Berlin, Galerie Apoteket Sweden) and group exhibitions (Circle Culture Galerie Berlin, Galerie Met Berlin).
