Olga Spyropoulou

Olga Spyropoulou (b. 1985, Athens) is a Finland-based performance artist, poet, and researcher, utilizing disorder as artistic practice. She is interested in how we relate to each other and experiments with different modalities of spectactorship and non-hierarchical methodologies. Spyropoulou explores poetry as performance material and exhibits it as visual artwork. Her poems have appeared in literary magazines in Greece such as Εμβόλιμον, Σίσυφος, Νέο Επίπεδο, in exhibitions (Lehmus Murtomaa: Political Being, Ex-Club: They came and ate all the seed) and in performance festivals (Kuudennen päivän festivaali).
