Anna Fafaliou (b.1987) is a conceptual artist currently working between London and Los Angeles. Her work explores the relationship between object, memory and identity.
Her practice is based on the distortion of commonplace objects, materials and forms in order to create new dialogues between them and the viewer, observing the disruption of familiarity to them.
In 2011 after having obtained an MA from the School of Fine Arts, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Greece, she underwent an MA in Film and Visual Arts, University of London.
Since then her work has been shown around the world in various institutions, festivals, galleries. Selected exhibitions include: “Sleep” at Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (2016), “Concrete Matters” group show at Whitechapel Gallery / Cass (2016), “Windows” at Art Miami (2016), “Maps” group show at Scene Art (2015). In 2017 Anna showed her first solo exhibitions at De Re Gallery in Los Angeles and at Twelve Twelve Gallery at Hague (the Netherlands, November 2017).
“Few things we left unsaid” is a series of neon signs. The idea was conceived by the artist during her residency in Los Angeles. The neon signs are placed in locations that represent limitation and restrain, referring to the emotional restriction and the strain of expressing one’s feelings.
