Y ART PROJECT
All alone together with prawns and monkey
Born in Athens and currently based in Singapore, Emi Avora is drawing subject matter from her everyday life in Asia as well as her Greek ancestry with a focus on the interior and still life. Her paintings are entering a dialog with modernist historical canons as well as ponder on our ambiguous relationship to colonial narratives, exoticism, taste, and the everyday.
She has participated in a number of solo and group shows including The National Theatre of Greece, Athens, the Apartment Gallery, Athens, Greenberg Van Doreen Gallery, NY, Studio Voltaire, London, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens, The Whitechapel Gallery, London and the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki. Her work can be found in private as well as public collections in Europe, Asia, and the USA. She recently participated in a few online exhibitions, including Be. Long.Ing, Young Space, The Greek Foundation, Vacant Museum, and Side x Side Contemporary. She is one of the 2020 Delphian Gallery open-call group exhibition winners and her work featured in the last publication of Friend of the Artist (FOA) and of Create! magazine. She is currently showcasing work at a group show at Alliance Francaise, Singapore.
