Αntigoni Tsagkaropoulou is an Athens-based artist. She graduated from the Athens School of Fine Arts and she is a member of the collective running AMOQA (Athens Museum of Queer Arts). She has showcased her work mostly in Germany and Greece, with several participations in exhibitions and festivals, such as the 6th Thessaloniki Biennial, Sound Acts festival in Athens, Witch Rave festival in Berlin. In collaboration with Fabiana Faleiros, she participates in the 10th Berlin Biennial at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art. Her latest work #TextMe_FluffyLibrary is a multifaceted, one year artwork-in-progress at Atopos Contemporary Visual Culture in Athens, with many collaborations between artists, educators, scientists, children and more. Her work combines large-scale inhabited installations with interactive and impromptu performances, plush sculptures and furry costumes. Deeply influenced by queer and feminist dialogues, her sources of inspiration also include lgbtqi+ fairy tales, feminist sci-fi literature, children’s stories, the furries’ subcultures and the natural world. Antigoni’s fluffy worlds blur the boundaries between different ages and genders, and allow for an exploration of different narratives through recontextualising identity, intimacy, sexuality and co-existence.
