I am interested in the concepts and notions of hybridity that exceed binaries relating to and responding to environmental and social issues.
Iria Vrettou is a moving image artist. She has a diploma in Animation from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London and she’s currently pursuing an MA Contemporary Art Practice Moving Image at the Royal College of Art in London. Her practice is primarily focused on concepts & modes of hybridity as method of research and practice, whilst engaging with aspects of hand-drawn animation. Iria Vrettou’s research interests explore the organic processes that lead to the creation of hybrid art works as complete spatiotemporal experiences, and the environmental urgencies that such experiences respond to. She considers the screen, within 21st century cultural production, as a powerful kind of ‘skin’, i.e. the point where different worlds, systems and facts meet and touch. She has shown her work in screenings and exhibitions in London, Rotterdam, Athens and Nisyros.
