Effie Halivopoulou

Effie Halivopoulou creates an autonomous, entirely personal and integrated visual discourse on the body, incorporated within a broader framework of research. Over recent years she has shown a remarkably consistent and mature involvement with issues of biotechnology. In the four works being shown now for the first time she composes mainly cyclical forms which swim in a brilliant sea of colors, different textures, materials and shapes, landscapes which evoke magnified images from the interior of the human body. Halivopoulou's work raises unavoidable questions associated with the biological genetic definition of man's physical, mental and psychological characteristics, in relation to a socially controlled context which makes it difficult to achieve differentiation from a predetermined course.
