Amanda Kyritsopoulou (b. 1989)

Amanda Kyritsopoulou (b.1989, Athens) lives and works in London. She received her postgraduate diploma in Contemporary Fine Art Practice from the Royal Academy Schools, RA London, in 2021 and her BA in Fine Art and History of Art from Goldsmiths University in 2017. She has shown her work in the UK and Greece.

Through a combination of photography, text, sculpture and moving image, Kyritsopoulou fabricates clusters of objects. Expressing an attraction to all that shapes everyday life for the anxious urban species, she likes to borrow from the aesthetic languages of design, sport, consumer culture, and the media, making prototyping attempts that reference a variety of crafts.

Within merging arenas of work and leisure and the ocean of contemporary visual and material culture, she uses her practice as a personal way to feel-ok; looking at thoughts, bodies and objects as a big knot-of-knots, she likes to fish for these patterns as a way to wonder about the self and the world,

the self in the world,

the world in the self.

Through subtle optical illusions and tricks in the use of materials, she invites her audience to look at looking and think of thinking.


Born: 1989 in Athens
