BioSotiria Bramou works as a Visual Designer in the city of Athens. She moves and experiments by blurring the lines between visual & wearable art. She graduated from Vakalo Art & Design College with a Bachelor's degree in Art & Design, a Master's degree in Visual Communication and in 2019 from Contemporary Jewellery Studio Anamma. She has participated in contemporary art exhibitions in Greece and abroad. Sotiria's work is around deconstructing the dominant social stereotypes and expressing her own values as a worker, as a female, as a designer. Interested in art's militant potential, she is motivated by what society deems unacceptable.
StatementAs a designer, Sotiria gets interested in minorities and vulnerable groups, regardless of religion, nationality, gender or age, her work is focused on the deconstruction of dominant stereotypes and the role of body-bodies as socially constructed.
Her style of creating wearable objects and jewellery inspired by the "abnormal", the "dirty", the "freak", the "obscene", communicates through her work a visual and emotional experience. The body is shaped, transformed, deformed into something else, irregular, uneven, and magical. Sometimes through surrealism, sometimes through macabre, it's where the reality meets the fairy tale.
