Using the tradition of artists’ film and video, Aikaterini Gegisian's most recent work seeks to restore a sense of intimacy with the world, through contemplation on the standardisation, measurability and control of space, global mobility and satellite control.
Aikaterini studied film at the University of Glasgow and Fine Art at the University of Brighton and Chelsea College of Art and Design. In 2001, she received the 1st Prize by Nagoya University, Japan for her degree show exhibition at the University of Brighton.
She has exhibited her work internationally, in places such as: Hold and Freight Gallery, London; Castlefield Gallery, Manchester; Kalfayan Gallery, Athens; 1st Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Art, Greece; State Museum of Contemporary Art, Greece; Kunstklub, Berlin; The Apartment Project, Istanbul; 5th & 6th Gyumri International Biennial of Contemporary Art, Armenia; Galerie Parissud, Paris; Espace Croise Gallery, Lille; Oberhausen International Short Film Festival, Germany; Videoformes Festival, Clermont-Ferrand, France.
Aikaterini is represented by Kalfayan Galleries, Athens - Thessaloniki and her work features in the collection of The Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Greece and State Museum of Contemporary Art, Greece.
