Interview: Giouli Tsatsopoulou

Giouli Tsatsopoulou is a 28  years old artist, based in the center of Athens, in Greece. She studied photography and audiovisual arts in Athens. She lived for a while in Spain, where she changed her way of life.

Luca Curci – When you start practicing art and why?

Giouli Tsatsopoulou – I started practicing art at 18, when I had to decide what to do in my life… I chose photography because I wanted to go to Africa and take pictures of animals there, especially of the monkeys. 3 years later I realized that photography helped me to express what is inside my head and my heart. It’s something that I can’t do by using words.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?

G.T. – I’ve done self portraits in inner spaces for 6 years. Work by work I’ve realized that I’m actually trying to explore and understand my relationship with the objects and the spaces I have experience with. My main inspiration derives from my relationships with other people and my feelings about what I see around me.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

G.T. – I just finished a big work (40 images) in which I tried to see the relation of inner space -body-exterior space. Little by little, I’m now starting a new work in which I will try to see how the distortion in a stability space goes.

L.C. – What was the best advice gives to you as an artist?

G.T. – One of my teachers at university told me that photography is not what you see in a picture but what you can imagine or feel that is happening out of the frame. That changed  my approach in photography.

L.C. – What is art for you?

G.T. – Art for me is to express yourself without thinking what the others will think after.

L.C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

G.T. – International ArtExpo organization gave me an opportunity to show my artworks in Italy, so I’m thankful. I met people that really appreciate and respect the works and the thoughts of artists. I loved the way the artworks were seated in the whole exhibition.
