Drawing on pop cultural, literary and autobiographical references, Athena Papadopoulos uses a wide range of materials (including cosmetic products and animal matter) and in her structural and collage works. Combining these with found text and image, she weaves herself as subject into a narrative thread that explores issues around contemporary gender politics and social relationships.
