Kyriaki Goni wins the 1. ArtScience Residency Program supported by Art Collection Telekom, Deutsche Telekom, – in collaboration with Ars Electronica and Johannes Kepler University in Linz.
Kyriaki Goni is an Athens born and based artist. She
works across media creating expanded, multi-layered installations. She
connects the ‘local’ with the ‘global’ by critically touching upon
questions of datafication, surveillance, distributed networks and
infrastructures, ecosystems, human and other-than-human relations. Her
artistic practice incorporates research and, in this framework, she
interacts with scholars and scientists from various disciplines. She
presents work internationally in solo (Aksioma, Drugo More, Onassis
Foundation) and group exhibitions (13th Shanghai
Biennale, Modern Love, 5th Istanbul Design Biennale, Transmediale,
13,700,000 km^, The Glass Room etc.). She is a Delfina Foundation alumna
(2019) and a Niarchos Artworks fellow (2018). Her latest work Data
Garden (Onassis Stegi, Ars Electronica) received the state prize
INSPIRE2020 from the MOMus Experimental Center of the Arts in Greece.
Her artistic research gets published (Leonardo MIT; 49:4, Neural #65 etc.), while Goni frequently designs and implements workshops as part of her practice. With prior graduate studies in Fine Arts, Goni also holds an MA in Digital Arts (Athens School of Fine Arts) along with a BA and an MSc in Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology (Panteion University Athens & Leiden University, NL).
