Haris Epaminonda
 
Haris Epaminonda (born 1980 in Nicosia, Cyprus, lives and works in Berlin) uses video and film, collage, photography, books and objects in an extensive process of assembling and disassembling appropriated materials to reconstruct non-linear narratives. The artist works with found images from the past—sometimes faded travel photographs, or the pages of old nature magazines, ethnographic artifacts or footage from forgotten television programmes. Epaminonda then manipulates the images, cutting and layering, to create new works that feel wholly part of the present.
Haris Epaminonda's work has been presented in several solo exhibitions in some of the leading institutions for contemporary art such as the Museum of Modern Art, NY (2011); the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany (2011); Tate Modern, London (2010); and Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2009). She has also been included in significant group exhibitions, like dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel in 2012, the 2nd Athens Biennale (2009) and the 5th Berlin Biennale (2008). Haris Epaminonda co-represented Cyprus at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
