Eleni Tsamadia (graduated ASFA) is a visual artist resident currently in Athens Greece.Her performance work offers a really intense visual and sentimental experience and is focused on ritual like approach.The same elements as well as vivid organic shapes she uses for creating sculptural environments and videos. One of the defining elements of hers is the sensitivity with which she approaches and portrays the human body, not as an artistic instrument but as a declaration of life and creation. Her latest focus point is how a familiar environment such as our body has the ability to become totally alienated when sentiment is involved . This case is transformed into performance and video artworks tasting our ability to construct worldviews in order to communicate our unique and fascinating human situation. A characteristic example of her work is her recent solo show in which these ideas of organic and sentimental battle created a really interesting environment of imaginary body forms.
