Chara Stergiou (b.1991) is a multidisciplinary artist and independent researcher.
Her practice focuses on the point where epistemological research and artistic practice merge. With a strong background in spatial studies, she manages to explore questions of agency, materiality and the wider distribution of technical media in the big scale. While exploring current hard-to-describe aesthetic spatialities through sonic narratives about phenomena of seemingly invisible and immaterial nature, she has developed the artistic methodology of the “DJ Lecture” a hybrid narrative technique for sociopolitical phenomena related to the sea where stories, geographies and identities are based on non-locality and seen as sonic, almost radiophonic, events to be transmitted.
Chara has studied architecture at the University of Thessaly, Volos, Greece and holds an MSc in Post-Industrial Design from the same University. She is also a graduate of the MA in Contemporary Art Theory at the Department of Visual Cultures of Goldsmiths, University of London.
She is a selected artist for the “Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale” and has been awarded with the Artworks Fellowship Art Program of Stavros Niarchos Foundation for the year 2020-2021.
