Sevina Tzanou

Sevina Tzanou (b. 1994, Athens, lives and works between Bonn and Athens) collapses bodies, space, and time in her painting process. Through an engagement with Burlesque, drama, and drag communities she explores the subjectivity of the femme – a hyper-feminine performance which celebrates and annunciates the queer characteristics of femininity. Through a hyper-visualization of femininity, Tzanou’s work, and notions of the femme, call attention to the very constructed nature of femininity and reclaim that construction with all its glossy, frilly, rich characteristics inherent in its deployment.

Sevina Tzanou studied in Düsseldorf under Katharina Grosse, Eberhard Havekost, and Yesim Akdeniz. Her most recent solo and group exhibitions include: “The great Disastress”, Kendall Koppe, Glasgow (2023); “Final Fantasy”, Temnikova & Kasela Gallery, Tallinn (2023); “Spikes that bite”, Margot Samel, New York  (2023); “Parties I am not Invited to”, Robert Grunenberg, Berlin (2022). She has performed at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn and Kai Art Center, Tallinn (Both 2023). Her work was featured at Paris Internationale 2023.
