Louisa Vergozisi (b. 1998, Volos, Greece) is a visual artist and photographer living and working between Maastricht and Athens.
Her practice and philosophy focuses on the silent side of the world, frequently inwoven with theological concepts and concerns. She explores the memory of the spiritual and landscape related scenery and its narratives in combination with historical feelings, like nostalgia and melancholia, which she recognises as essential elements of culture.
Growing up near a remote, small village in the countryside of Greece, raised in her a sensibility towards things that usually won't be found in the center of attention. Vergozisi asks to understand terms like "tradition", "culture" and "identity" as unstable, abstract and constantly evolving.
The media she uses include not only film, photography and installation, but also a combination of those, sometimes in an interactive way, making the boundaries of each fade out.
