Bildung: Royal College of Art, London



Dafni Barbageorgopoulou´s work comprises a network woven from various narratives, which is formally expressed in installations, sculptures and collages. The combination of different materials, which are equipped with their own technical and cultural information and codes, leads to an artistic framework that is permeated with questions about the relationship between language, space and body.
