Ιris Touliatou (born 1981, Athens, Greece) engages in a conceptual practice, which transposes the political, environmental and affective, and employs various mediums necessary for each intervention. Manifesting in sculpture, photography, sound, scent and text, her work often draws on found objects and creates open forms and shared experiences, to comment on time, intimacy, transience, mortality, economies and states of being.
Ιris Touliatou has exhibited work at The 7th Athens Biennale, Greece; DESTE Foundation for Contemporary Art, Greece; and Palais de Tokyo, France, among others.
