Nomatei – a koinônia of minumental figures. 2015/2016
“Nomatei – a koinônia of minumental figures”, is an installation of handmade, minumental, representational, full body portraits of individuals made of fired clay. “Nomatei” is a monument to the unacknowledged people. It identifies differences of characters, advocates diversity, and eliminates hierarchies and social positions. Nomatei project explores experiences of cooperation, loneliness, tolerance, success, loss, prejudice, complementarity, understanding, social behavior and ultimately coexistence, through the heterogeneity of the figure and through minumentalisation. My investigation is about a complex web of interactions which take place in the process between artist, subject, viewer, participant, recipient, audience, and object.
Chaos to Order. 2015
Archives work against entropy. Chaos comes to order, unreachable is found, loose becomes tight, lost is connected, deterioration turns to preservation, history lost, revives to become history found, a moment in time may be forever there…

Eleni Zevgaridou (b. Thessaloniki, Greece, 1961), after 28 years in the advertising sector, turned her full attention to art. The decision was taken in 2012, after she had the chance to study sculpture for two years (2010-2012), under Professor Sławomir Andrzej Mieleszko, at the department of Monumental Sculpture at the Art Institute of Maria Skłodowska-Curie University of Lublin, Poland. In 2015 she graduated her MA in Fine Art degree at the University of Lincoln, UK. She is an elected member of The Royal Society of Sculptors. Her work in sculpture takes a variety of forms, abstract, figurative, and narrative. The materials are clay, resin, plaster, mixed media. All her sculptural work share a fascination with human connections, body language, and individuality.
