about

COMOTIRIO is the co-working scheme between Eriphyli Veneri and Naira Stergiou. Sharing an Athens-based artist studio, they remain in a constant process of exchanging views and ideas. Their mutual influence leads to horizontal collaboration on an artistic, theoretical and curatorial level around the thematics of staged experiencing, fiction-making and fictionality, the Sacred and the Profane, mourning and ritualistic practicing.
