Despina Petridou

Despina Petridou is a Cypriot visual artist currently based in Dherynia, Ammochostos, Cyprus. D. Petridou has recently concluded her studies at the University of Edinburgh (Edinburgh College of Art) in Scotland, earning an MA Fine Art undergraduate degree and an MScR Collections and Curating Practices postgraduate degree. Her art practice belongs predominantly within a sculptural realm, producing work that embodies an exploration of the history of the self, through the spectrum of materiality. The main ideas of her art practice are presented through sculptural artworks that manifest qualities, processes and rituals that make up this history, mingling ideas of labour, time, personal ritual, and hand intuition.
