Nasia Papavasiliou is a multidisciplinary artist from Cyprus that lives and works in London since 2012.
Graduate of Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design, she holds a Master of Arts in Performance: Design and Practice.
She worked as a Teaching and Learning Assistant tutor for the equivalent BA course at Central Saint Martins as well as an Artistic Researcher for MAD lab of Cyprus University of Technology.
She created work in the UK, Cyprus, Greece, Spain and currently Germany.
Her works were presented in theatre and gallery spaces as well as in site-specific interventions.
Her most recent works were shown at Vorfluter Berlin, Prague Quadrennial 2023, Glogauair Berlin, ETKO Winery Limassol, Barbican Centre's gardens, Platform theatre Kings cross, Point centre of contemporary art - Nicosia, Skopelos Art Foundation, Joya Arte y Ecologia, Dance House Limassol and more.
In parallel with her artistic practice, she works in various collaborations as an artistic researcher and artistic collaborator (Media Art and Design Lab - TEPAK University Cyprus), visual dramaturg/scenographer and site-specific artist in various projects.
Using mainly raw materials, her works carry a poetic and imaginative sensibility translated through performance, sculptural scenography and audio visual installations.
Informed by fieldwork research, her practice looks into the notion of “land” both as a geological and discursive environment.
From both a physical and metaphysical vantage point, she intricately weaves together nature and geographies with the nuances of grief - drawing parallels to the cosmic expanse to embrace the divides and complexities between multiple realities of time.
