Artist Profile

Sevina Tzanou

Born 1994, in Athens Greece.

She works in Germany since 2012. She is currently based between Athens and Bonn. She uses mainly painting and burlesque performance in order to explore the performative aspect of femme identity through constructed feminine attributes, female sexuality and female impersonation.

In 2013 she began her studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under the guidance of Katharina Grosse, Eberhard Havekost and Yesim Akdeniz. After exploring the picturesque possibilities of abstract forms and structures she distinguished an analogy within social formalities in terms of restriction, representation and perception. As a woman artist who deals with femme representation she is interested in challenging perception and sexuality in relation to the concept of gender as it has been structured through history by patriarchy and the male gaze.

Her interest lies in expanding the limits of femininity and free her figures from heteronormative ideals and repressive expectations.
