ARTWORKS was established in 2017 with the support of its founding donor, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), and with the aim to create a fertile and nurturing environment for Greek artists through funding and public engagement opportunities.

Through the SNF Artist Fellowship Program--its core activity--ARTWORKS awards monetary prizes to individual artists and curators in recognition of their skills and qualifications. Apart from financial support, the organization offers access to skill sharing events and professional development tools, as well as networking opportunities with arts professionals through partnerships with cultural institutions and international artist residency programs.

Eva Papamargariti

(September - December 2023)

Eva Papamargariti is an artist, based between Athens and London. She uses a variety of mediums such as moving image, printed material and sculptural installations that explore the relationship between digital space and material reality, as well as the dynamic intra-connection and intra-action of events between these two systems, among others. Her work unfolds and dwells in the suspended moment and space where grotesque, fiction and realism collide, and an amalgam of diverse realities emerge. Papamargariti’s research and practice delves into themes related to the notions of identification and metamorphosis, the idea of simultaneity, the merging and dissolving of our surroundings with the virtual, the mundane, the eerie and the extraordinary. More specifically using video, text, sound, motion capture, AR, CG animations, 3d scans, character creation softwares, sculptures and textiles she explores notions of becoming, the dialectics of fluidity, techno-romance, transformation, and characteristics of symbiosis between human and non-human agents and the intricate traces and kinships that this entanglement produces. Furthermore, her practice revolves around processes that are established through our online presence, such as the construction and shifting of our identities, avatars, vernacular language/imagery and worldbuilding. She has exhibited worldwide in institutions, museums and festivals such as the New Museum (New York), Whitney Museum (New York), Tate Britain (London), the EMST–National Museum of Contemporary Art (Athens), the Benaki Museum (Athens), MAAT Museum (Lisbon), GAMeC (Bergamo), Museum of Moving Image (New York), MoMA PS1 (New York), Museum of Contemporary Art, Montreal, Athens Biennale( Athens), Thessaloniki Biennale (Thessaloniki), MUTEK, Transmediale Festival (Berlin), Liste Art Fair (Basel), Kunstraum Niederösterreich (Vienna). Her work is featured in public and private collections such as Dakis Joannou Collection (DESTE Foundation), Onassis Foundation, PCAI Collection, MOMus collection and more.
