Kyriaki Costa

Kyriaki Costa was born in Nicosia, Cyprus. Her recent work deals with social and natural phenomena which she enigmatically transforms and places in indoor spaces. By musealising the natural world her work constantly blurs the boundaries of nature and culture allowing the audience to see them as part of a continuum. Costa deals with topographies, histories, and place-making, by using art as an anthropological practice and as a set of interventions on the social. The corpus of her work as a whole is thematically influenced by history, sociology and the politics of identity and space. She is also an activist in Cyprus, focusing on environmental issues as well as matters of public spaces and the commons. She studied Byzantine and Applied Arts in Greece and the United Kingdom. She received her Masters degree in Art from Kingston University, London. She is a member of the Cyprus Visual Artists Association.
