BIO

    Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou (b. 1993) is a multidisciplinary artist from Athens, Greece based in Los Angeles, California. Their work spans video, installation, performance, and sculpture, creating experimental, immersive, interactive, and cinematic environments. Their practice centers on themes of softness, deviance, kinship, radical pedagogy and community building as queer resistance strategies in response to oppressive regimes. Inspired by sci-fi literature, queer poetry and feminist cinema, and exploring neglected her*stories of the past, their world-body-building methodology is about creating alternative futures as safe hubs to celebrate queer survival and affect. Their work re-appropriate technologies of power and reimagines the present through “techno-deviant” practices of resistance.
     Antigoni is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Media Arts and Practice at USC School of Cinematic Arts. They also hold an MFA in Media Arts from UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture, and a BFA in Sculpture from the Athens School of Fine Arts in Greece. Antigoni has received numerous scholarships, including from the Fulbright Foundation, the Onassis Foundation, and the ARTWORKS Fellowship from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. 
     Their work has been exhibited at prestigious venues and showcased at festivals such as the Arnolfini Center of Contemporary Arts in Bristol (Solo Show), Honor Fraser Gallery in L.A., REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney CalArts, Hebbel Am Ufer in Berlin, WICKED Queer Film Festival, Thessaloniki TIFF, documenta14, Wrightwood 651, Athens Biennale, Berlin Biennale, Thessaloniki Biennale, and the National Opera of Greece, among others. They have collaborated with notable artists such as William Pope.L, Annie Sprinkle (document 14),  Annea Lockwood and La Pocha Nostra.
