Goldsmiths MFA Award
Evangelia Dimitrakopoulou lives and works between London and Athens. Her work consists of multi-material installations, imperceptible infiltrations, piercing sounds and dominating constructions. The mix of the different elements signals ideas of transformation, invasions, quiet shifts, and alterations. She utilizes an underlying yet strong sense of intense control, submission, and sharpness. Everything becomes actively harmful.
