Artist

Maria Zervos

Maria Zervos’s most recent work revolves around an interdisciplinary approach to video, performance, poetry and drawing in an ongoing negotiation between topos and utopia. She remaps otherworldly landscapes such as the barren stretches of the Atacama Desert, the highest peak of Mount Olympus, gray zones or places off the map, such as refugee camps, in a search for personal geographies. Distinct for its allusions to passage, Zervos’s work often investigates the conflation of nature and culture, aspiring to social criticism.

Maria Zervos is a visual artist and poet from Athens currently living and working between the Netherlands and Greece. In 2020 she was awarded the NEON grant for her solo show at MOMus Museum of Contemporary Art. Zervos is a Fulbright Scholar and in 2012 was invited by Harvard University as a Visiting Fellow to pursue research on her practice. She has taught courses at Harvard University as well as at Emerson College in Boston since 2014. She has presented her work in solo and group exhibitions worldwide including the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens; Ileana Tounta Contemporary Art Center, Athens; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Nieuw Dakota, Amsterdam; Kunstvlaai, Amsterdam; The Breeder, Athens; Onassis Cultural Centre, New York City; and the Hellenic American Union, Athens, among others. She has published three books, DiagnosisHunting, and Peripatetics on her practice and is represented by the Ileana Tounta Center for Contemporary Art. Zervos’s art is part of several collections including the D. Daskalopoulos Collection and the National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), Athens.
