Maria Lalou

Maria Lalou explores the topic of ‘viewing’ throughout her large-scale installations, performances, and publications. Focusing on the topic of viewing, she incorporates cinematic apparatus and surveillance as part of her tools, with central references to ‘the political of the viewer’. Each of her works formulates a precise frame often in the form of a distilled, almost lab-like setting. In her native Greek language, she states: as spectator, one becomes ‘theoros’ in the sense that one observes, participates and interprets the performative process from a certain perspective while this is part of the performance’s ontology.

Maria Lalou’s works have been presented internationally at Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam; Onomatopee, Eindhoven; Rondo Sztuki, Katowice, Poland; Contemporary Art Museum of Thessaloniki; and Industrial Gas Museum, Athens, amongst others. She has been a guest lecturer at Rijksakademie Studios, Amsterdam; Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella, Italy; and Università Iuav di Venezia, Venice, amongst others. She has contributed to the peer review journal activate, Roehampton University, London, as well at Leonardo, MIT Press Journals. Lalou has an ongoing collaboration with Danish architect Skafte Aymo-Boot working on the archival work [UN]FINISHED. The work is about concrete skeletons of Athens that engages the viewer in a process of looking into social, political and personal parts of the history of the city. Since 2004, Lalou shares her time between Amsterdam and Athens.
