b. 1978 in Altstätten / Lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland
Based in Zurich, Switzerland, Athene Galiciadis studied Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and the École cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL). Galiciadis’ works are characterised by her typical colour palette and repertoire of forms, many of which are geometric and organic in nature, echoing concrete art and its precursor, Constructivism. She assembles her works from various materials and develops her own formal language that invokes associations with tradition, craft, and design. Patterns, models, theories, science and spirituality are all themes that Galiciadis uses as tools in her work. Notable solo shows include: I shall wash your shadow (2017), BolteLang Gallery, Zurich; Planetaria (2014), Galerie Emmanuel Hervé, Paris; and Sublunatic, sic! (2013) Raum für Kunst, Luzern. Recent accolades include: the Schlesinger Foundation Scholarship (2017/18), the UBS Grant (2012) and the Prix Mobilière Suisse Art (2011).
