Vassiliki-Maria Plavou

Vassiliki-Maria Plavou is mostly an architect. She works in the field of design and curating, while focusing on the overlapping of art and architecture. She explores through the exhibition format, the relationships of physical space and the space of the book. As part of her practice, she has established a graphic design agency with Marios Stamatis called Studio Precarity. The studio maps the dynamic and the limitations of several design tools on the occasion of diverse research narratives. Vassiliki-Maria Plavou’s research interests are gendered geographies, new materialism and the the notion of precarity in contemporary labor. She has curated the group shows; Please, Please Me, Amfissa Former Hospital, Amfissa (2020), Cra(u)sh. Or How You Made Me Kiss The Pavement, Grace Athens, Athens (2020) and the performance pieces Anthology of Cracks,  Ksylapothiki Building – Ephorate of Antiquities of Piraeus and Islands, Piraeus (2020), Genesis21 <3, Kappatos Rooms at St.George Lycabettus, Athens (2019).
