D Contemporary is delighted to introduce 'Social Taxidermy: Sublime Objects', the first London solo exhibition of Greek artist, Irene Pouliassi.
Irene Pouliassi traverses within the subjects of identity pain and contemporary societal tribalistic manifestations. Being raised between Athens and North Corfu where she originates from, reflections from the austere turbulence and the revolutionary zeitgeist form the red thread in her work creating a riotous essence combined with folk aesthetics. Sculpture, installation, video art, assemblages – Pouliassi’s artistic practice is diverse and transdisciplinary, building up to an allegorical social taxidermy. Using garments, household objects and biomaterial she revives the discarded, remoulding neo-punk au courant fetishes.
