Μaria Sideri is an artist whose practice is focused on movement, sound and voice and is deeply influenced from her studies in dance and cultural anthropology. Using methods that derive from both disciplines and in relation to the cultural context in which the work occurs, her investigations turn to women’s experiences: to the female body in possession or in objectification as an “Other”, as a landscape or an object and desires to voice marginalized women’s works in the course of time. Maria holds a BA in classical studies from the University of Ioannina in Greece, an MA in history of religion from the University of Geneva in Switzerland. She is currently doing her PHD research in the University of Western Macedonia in Greece on the body and the archive and archiving the work of female artists.
In 2019, she was invited by IN SITU to do an Acupuncture in Marseille (France) about the place of women in the public space.
