About



Visual artist, writer and curator based between London, UK and Nicosia, Cyprus. His multidisciplinary practice uses video, poetry and sound to explore geopolitical intersections between body and landscape, spatiotemporal narratives that encompass corporeality and nuanced topicalities of corporeal existence.  

After graduating with an MA from the University of the Arts London, Charalambous has co-founded and co-directed various arts projects including Perceiving Landscape(s) at the International Association of Photography and Theory (2020-21), Platform: A Climate Challenge at the Visual Artists and Art Theorists Association (2018-20) and One Life Down and Eight to Go at Garage project space (2018), among others.
