Eleni Tomadaki

Eleni Tomadaki is a visual artist based between London & Athens. Working interdisciplinarily across painting, moving image, installation, performance, text and digital media, she invents non-linear narratives to interrogate one’s relationship to the Other. She is interested in the multiple forms this Other can take, such as language, society, the law, one’s own self, or simply of another. Through examining these relationships, she explores themes around the trouble of identity, resistance and belonging/ not belonging. The distorted use of language in her work abdicates its legitimacy as a definite symbol. She graduated from the Royal College of Art in London (2019) and she has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021). She will be joining for a month the Mountain School of Arts in Los Angeles this September (2023). She was one of the 6 commissioned writers for Open Space’s 2021 edition of Writing Space. She has shown work in the UK at Tate St Ives, Gasworks, South London Gallery, Assembly Point, HOAX Publication; and internationally at the Institute of Fine Arts Toulouse, Uppsala Konst Museum, Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, The Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, amongst others. Her work has also taken part in international film festivals including the Oscar-qualifying 37th Cinanima International Animation Festival and the 56th Thessaloniki International Film Festival, and has received a Student Award from the 15th Melbourne International Animation Festival and the 6th Animasyros International Animation Festival. In September 2021 she debuted her first NFT project. Her on-chain work has been featured on Times Square and exhibited in A2 Accelerate Art’s show “Past is Prologue” at the Elizabeth Street Gallery in Soho NY during NFT NYC 2022. She has been part of Scope Art Show (Miami beach) curated by A2 Accelerate Art during Art Basel Miami 2022.
