About me:

My name is Irini Folerou. I was born and raised in Athens, Greece but the last years I live and work in London.

In my work I explore the materiality of spatial experiences and the relationship with the unstoppable implications of time. 

Themes in my work are around the notions of memory, nostalgia, safety, captivity and isolation, in relation to the human perception and presence.

In my most recent work I explore the personal limits in a dialogue with the social boundaries and norms.
