Irene Pouliassi traverses within the subjects of identity pain and contemporary societal tribalistic manifestations. Being raised between Athens and North Corfu where she originates from, reflections from the austere turbulence and the revolutionary zeitgeist form the red thread in her work creating a riotous essence combined with folk aesthetics. Sculpture, installation, video art, assemblages – Pouliassi’s artistic practice is diverse and transdisciplinary, building up to an allegorical social taxidermy. Using garments, household objects and biomaterial she revives the discarded, remolding neo-punk au courant fetishes.
In 2016 she got her Masters Integrated in painting from the Fine Arts Academy in the University of Western Macedonia and in 2018 she Graduated from Chelsea College of Arts with a Masters in Fine Arts. Her work has been shown at Charlie Smith London, D Contemporary London, Sejong Museum of Art in Seoul, National Historical Museum of Tirana,Jing Lu gallery in Taipei, Taiwan. In late 2019 Pouliassi presented her second solo exhibition ‘Ritalin Shots’ in Gallery Peritechnon Karteris which represents her in Greece. From 2021 Irene Pouliassi is a studio resident at Bomb Factory Foundation in London.
