Despina Zacharopoulou


Despina Zacharopoulou is a performance artist born in Arcadia, Greece, currently working between London and Athens. Her practice investigates performance as SPATIUM MONSTRORUM: surface and event of parrhesia - understood, according to Foucault's definition, as free logos which implies the pronunciation of the truth at all costs, even at personal risk, and as an indispensable condition for acting to the common good - aiming to reconstitute philosophy as an embodied practice and method towards a radically other life. Her live works borrow their artistic vocabulary from the 1970s performance tradition (e.g. long duration, pain practices, nudity, visceral character, performance-audience encounters etc), to raise contemporary issues on live art research methods.
