About


Othonas Charalambous is a visual artist, writer and curator from Cyprus. An MA graduate in fashion and technology from the University of the Arts London, Charalambous explores intimate relationships between the body and emerging technologies. His practice encompasses video, sound, sculpture and installation to create hybridized expressions of spatiotemporal narratives that encompass the body, corporeal existence and seemingly imperceptible nuances of its corporeality. Charalambous is the co-founder and co-director of the interdisciplinary programme Platform: A Climate Challenge at the Visual Artists and Art Theorists Association and currently serves as lead curator of Perceiving Landscape(s) at the International Association of Photography and Theory.
