(is bored again)
The Land of Hypnos Featured Artist #03

Eleni is bored again engages the viewer in a process of unlearning. Through re-approaching the world from the child’s psyche, the project aims to confront us to the grown-up’s neglected innocence, which shifts from vulgar to raw and from raw to stupid, from stupid to erotic and from erotic to delirious, from delirious to naïve and from naïve to dark, from dark to needy and from needy to humorous and and and.

And life goes on.

Eleni: Selected Work

Eleni Tomadaki is a visual artist based between London & Athens. Working interdisciplinary across moving image, installation, performance, text and digital media, she invents non-linear storytelling narratives to interrogate one’s relationship to the Other. She is interested in the multiple forms this Other can take, such as language, society, the law, one’s own self, or simply of another. Through examining these relationships, she explores themes around the trouble of identity, resistance and belonging/ not belonging.
She is a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art in London, and one of the 6 commissioned writers for Open Space’s 2021 edition of Writing Space. She has shown work in the UK at Tate St Ives, Gasworks, South London Gallery, Assembly Point, HOAX Publication; and internationally at the Institute of Fine Arts Toulouse, Uppsala Konst Museum, Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, The Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin, amongst others. Her work has also taken part in international film festivals including the Oscar-qualifying 37th Cinanima International Animation Festival and the 56th Thessaloniki International Film Festival, and has received a Student Award from the 15th Melbourne International Animation Festival and the 6th Animasyros International Animation Festival. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
