Angela Melitopoulos is an internationally renowned artist and realizes experimental media art pieces since 1985. She named her projects being cine(so)matic essays. Her methodology is foregrounding her interest in mnemopolitics, time, geography and collective memory in relation to electronic/digital media and documentation. She reflects non-linear montage technics and debates mobility in relation to perception. She works on time based mnemonic narratives and performs the relation between archive and story-telling in expanded cinema lectures. Her theoretical, conceptual, essayist approaches result in multi-screen installations that are shown in many international museums worldwide. Her collaborations with philosopher Maurizio Lazzarato refer to the concept of the machinic animism within our subjectivities.
Her recent project Matri Linear B – Surfacing Earth was shown in the Gwangju Biennial (2021), at the CAAC Seville (2019), and the documenta14 (2017) where she showed her video installation Crossings.
Angela Melitopoulos holds a Ph.D. in Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths University in London and was teaching as a professor in the Media School of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
