Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos

  • Artist

Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos is a multi-disciplinary conceptual artist working with language and identity. Born in Greece, raised in Paris, she now lives and works in NY. Her work investigates the definition and construction of identities, personal memories, culture and collective histories in the post-Internet age. She places herself as a translator, building connections between past and present, physical and virtual and ultimately between one and another.

Her work was exhibited in galleries, institutions and public spaces in North America, Europe and Latin America including AMA | Art Museum of the Americas (DC, USA), Künstlerhaus Wien (Vienna, Austria), Palazzo delle Arti Napoli (Naples, Italy). Kosmatopoulos also worked alongside socially charged entities such as the Organization of American States (United States) and the Museum Louis Braille (France) to create large-scale installations that raise awareness on social issues.

After the exhibition at Kunsthal Aarhus, Kosmatopoulos will create a large scale outdoor installation at the MUBE Museum in Sao Paulo and a multi-location olfactive project with the Institute for Art and Olfaction in Los angeles, both in the Fall 2016.
