Athens-based Christiana Soulou makes complex drawings that investigate the nature of being human and its many conditions. The expressive lines and expansive re-imagining of forms in her work often derive from literature.
Soulou’s drawings exist in series and often have a familiarity through their recollection of myth and narratives highlighted through this unique presentation that brought together many of the artist’s series for the first time, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Les Enfants Terribles, The Public and Book of Imaginary Beings after Jorge Luis Borges.
This was Soulou’s largest exhibition to date and the first survey presentation to bring a selection of her different series together. It included some 100 works from 1982 to the present day.
