Marianna Christofides, born in 1980 in Nicosia, lives in Cologne. In 2011 she represented Cyprus at the 54 Venice Biennial. The artist has received several awards, among them grants of the Stiftung Kunstfonds, the IfA and the DAAD. In 2014 she was an awardee at Villa Aurora, Los Angeles.
Reaching across disciplines and media Christofides works with installations, film and text. Images are considered visual documents of (hi)stories and places that have the potential to be reconfigured. These narratives are also rooted in an engagement of the artist and her biography with the actual places.
