Biography:
Irini is a curator, writer and artist based in Nicosia. Currently the resident curator for "Endrosia", Irini is interested in supporting local artistic production, experimentation and collaboration through interdisciplinarity. Focused primarily on notions of space and place, memory, identity and the archive, Irini’s practice engages critically with how art and exhibition practices are implicated in political processes. They hold an MA in Aesthetics and Politics from CalArts and a BA in Culture, Criticism and Curation from Central Saint Martins. Marina is a Cypriot cultural worker and writer based in London, currently working as an editorial assistant for the film magazine Little White Lies. As well as writing reviews and features on film, she is part of the collective "Endrosia" where she is a co-editor of the object-ive zine. Her research and practice combine text and performance to think through spatial meanings, queer narratives, archival impulses and a decolonised political imagination. She holds an MA in Global Cultural Industries from SOAS University of London and a BA in English and Drama from QMUL. Together, they run "Pashies LTD" , a creative outlet that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Through low-res formats they draw from common affective experiences and come to terms with the complexities of gender and self-image.
