Fafaliou’s 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.
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).
She’s given lectures as a visiting artist at NYU, King’s College and Bangkok University to name few.
Due to the her interest in the notion of cultural memory, Anna has attended various artist’s residencies across the USA, Asia and Europe.
