Iria Vrettou’s practice focuses on concepts and modes of hybridity as research and practice methods, while also addressing aspects of hand-drawn animation in relation to larger cinematic and performative practices. Her research focuses on environmental and social issues, as well as the function of the ‘screen’ in the context of cultural production and political processes. She also investigates the creation of art works that can function as disquieting, complete spatiotemporal experiences.
