Andriana Nikolaidou joined the Cyi-STARC in September 2015 as an Intern in Advanced Imaging for Art and Cultural Heritage. She works on the digital libraries of Dioptra as a research assistant.
Andriana received a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts with first-class honors from De Montfort University(UK) in 2013. Her project "Socrates said" explores the theme of history as an eternal cycle of progress and the dialectics of devastation and rebuilding through mythology. Andriana has participated in several international exhibitions and workshops. Most recently, her work titled "The stories behind.." was one project selected to represent Cyprus at the Biennial of Young Artist from Europe and the Mediterranean (BJECEM) in Milan,Italy (2015). The work is based on the significant and value of tradition in art, examing how history is embedded in artwork, carrying the weight of heritage and culture. In 2014, Andriana participated in the annual "Inspire Workshop" organized by the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art. Working with Pierre Labat, Andriana's work, which explored the ephemeral and intangible aura of objects and their affect on interior spaces, was displayed in an eponymous group show. The previous year, she was awarded an artist residency in Baroda,India at the Maharajan University(2013). During her stay, she produced mixed media installations related to Indian culture and heritage.
Andriana is interested on the aspect of archeology, researching the theme of legend as it relates to cultural narratives by questioning the notions between visual and scientific perspectives. Her aim is to combine new and porous ways of digital technologies and specifically advanced imaging into digital art scenarios.
