PHOTOGRAPHY

2021

Took part in City Dwellers, a group online exhibition on how the city has been a source of inspiration for four Greek mid-career artists, Dimitra Ioannou, Sotiris Panousakis, Lila Polenaki and Kostis Velonis. “With her ongoing photographic essay “The City is Now Yours,” Dimitra Ioannou seeks to question the lack of representation of women in the public space. The series is a kind of palimpsest: in each photo there are traces of another; the magnified surfaces of walls, pavements and slogans found in Athens are inhabited by women’s bodies and vice versa.”

2020

The photo narrative ‘Dark and Dawn’ is published on Tentacular 6, a poetry, responses and arts magazine. Τhe series magnifies textures and surfaces of walls and public spaces in the Athenian Zone. Τhe issue is co-edited by Gboyega Odubanjo, and Jonathan Catherall. All photos, except for one, were shot on 35mm film.

SOLO EXHIBITION

2011: Motel Galini at the project space six d.o.g.s. in Athens. Micro-landscapes and distances.

“Their concepts are vague, and furthermore differ from image to image: neither snapshots nor landscape studies nor “decisive moments” nor staged realism nor (the more recent trend of) ‘plasticity’.
Their intentions are vague too: neither travelogues nor archives nor studies in abstraction, form or light nor narratives nor descriptions nor concealment nor recollections of the ephemeral.” – excerpt from a note by the curator Nadja Argyropoulou on the photos presented in Motel Galini.

2008:

The photo narrative “Together on this” is featured in the print magazine Mother, Spring 2008.
