Eirene Constantinou (b.199, Larnaca) is an artist from Cyprus. She holds a BA/MA in Fine and Applied Arts from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2009-2015) part of the painting workshop of George Skylogiannis. As a visual artist, she uses an interdisciplinary research approach that has light as a main subject and sculptural element, which can be explored beyond the limitations of human visual perception, activating its material existence to create spatio-temporal sensory environments. Her practice is experimenting with contemporary and traditional sculpture techniques to create luminous objects from reused non-recyclable materials, clay sculptures and ceramic pots which challenge their form and use. The digital reconstruction of photographs combines elements from separate sources of the artist's personal archive, redefining them as part of a new state of being of a seemingly irrational and incoherent nature. Her recent work includes the public intervention/installation “Signs of The Times” on the dead zone of Ledra Palace Nicosia (100 years J.Beuys Social Sculpture, Goethe Institut 2021) and the establishment of the independent artist-run space EVOHK in Larnaca (2020). She is a member of various youth groups, local initiatives and research programs that deal with the development and empowerment of cultural and social action through the arts.
