Antigoni Tsagkaropoulou / Bunny (they/she) is a visual artist from Greece, based between Athens and Berlin. They hold a B.A. from the Athens School of Fine Arts and they will receive an MFA in Design Media Arts at UCLA, CA, with a Fulbright scholarship, starting in Fall 2022. In their work, they envision alternative universes where subversive characters thrive to re-imagine a less traumatic past, critique the present and anticipate a future that is not dependent on the existing historical and social infrastructure. In their methodology, the social component is paramount, while radical fluffiness is being used as a means to foster intimacy and interaction. Their visionary worlds attempt to build bridges of kinship between art, alternative ways of learning and social activism. They have realized several large-scale projects (ex. Fluffy Library) and participated in major exhibitions in Greek and international institutions such as a solo show at the Arnolfini Center of Contemporary Arts in Bristol, a solo show at B. & M. Theocharakis Foundation for the Fine Arts & Music, a one-year residency at the ATOPOS cvc, a summer school at the Royal Academy of Dance in London, the 6th Thessaloniki Biennale of Contemporary Arts, the Athens Biennale OMONOIA, Wrightwood 659 in Chicago, Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Austria, Athens and Epidaurus Festival, Goethe Institute of Athens, The Breeder Gallery, Sophienshaele Theatre, HAU Hebbel Am Ufer Berlin, KW Institute for Contemporary Arts, the Alternative Stage of the National Opera of Greece, Thessaloniki International Film Festival among others. Their latest project “Dentata Pearls” was commissioned and produced by STEGI Onassis Foundation in Greece. They have worked and collaborated with artists such as Annie Sprinkle, Brooke Candy, Annea Lockwood, Willem Pope L.
After years of developing a practice across a range of mediums, during their Fulbright scholarship they will explore the rich and ever evolving field of Media Arts and the areas of interactive media, time-based work, virtual environments, and information spaces.
