Ioanna Pantazopoulou creates ephemeral sculptural monuments and large installations out of unwanted and discarded materials (that tell a story).  The sculptures follow the principles of architecture without being trapped in them. They overturn the notion of experience and participation, they attempt – through unexpected collisions – to create new connections between the past and the present, of what is lost and found.
