Athene Galiciadis, born in 1978 in Altstätten, CH, lives and works in Zurich, CH.
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 characterized by her typical color 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: Orientation at Museum Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich (2023), Athene Galiciadis at von Bartha in Basel (2021), Spiraling Shifts at Nidwaldner Museum Winkelriedhaus in Stans (2019), I shall wash your shadow, BolteLang Gallery in Zurich (2017), Planetaria at Galerie Emmanuel Hervé in Paris (2014), and Sublunatic at sic! Raum für Kunst in Lucerne (2013). In addition, she has participated in numerous group exhibitions, for instance, at Aargauer Kunsthaus in Aarau (2021), Atelier Hermann Haller in Zurich (2020), and Kunst Raum Riehen (2016). Accolades include the Schlesinger Foundation Scholarship (2017/18), the UBS Grant (2012), and the Prix Mobilière Suisse Art (2011).
