Ioanna Pantazopoulou in conversation with Ruth Claxton

Ioanna Pantazopoulou creates ephemeral sculptural monuments and large installations out of unwanted and discarded materials. The sculptures follow the principles of architecture without being trapped in them. Ruth Claxton is an artist, Associate Director at Eastside Projects and co-producer of the Birmingham Art Map.
