Dimitra Kondylatou is a visual artist living in Athens. She works across video-making, editing, writing and hosting. She is interested in the limits of art and its entanglements with tourism and everyday life. She visually explores gestures, practices and correspondences within contexts and spaces of hospitality and exchange. Her methodology is informed by and crosses boundaries with other disciplines, such as anthropology, through her participation in collective projects, the realization of workshops and the presentation of her work in exhibitions, conferences and publications.
From 2012 to 2018 her artistic research on art and tourism was enriched through her seasonal occupation as manager and worker of neion guesthouse in Lefkada, and through the residential project The island-resignified that she initiated and hosted there from 2015 to 2017. She is a co-founder and editor in kyklàda.press publications (2020–). She was a member of TWIXTlab (2017-2018). She graduated from the Dutch Art Institute (2017) and the Athens School of Fine Arts (2012). In 2019 she received the ARTWORKS fellowship from Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Her artistic activity since 2008 includes workshops and group exhibitions.
