Born in Adelaide, South Australia 1994, Olympia Antoniadis is an emerging Australian
artist who completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, 2015.
Voyeuristic and playful, Antoniadis allures the viewer into quiet spaces exploring the domestic territories of others. Her work is commonly based in the bedroom where one finds themselves in a familiar space, intimate and calm expressing the most benign potential of human life. The walls of these interior spaces construct boundaries around the figures, inspiring new narratives and relations. Whilst dividing them from the outside world Antoniadis' simultaneously constructs an internal world of her own.
In Her Solo Show Veil, Antoniadis Figures are covered by layers that obstruct our perspective of those underneath. Building connections based on the subtle suggestions of body movement and placement that provoke our imagination. She motivates our thoughts playfully and encourages her viewers to observe the mundane settings where common occurrences are shifted and provoked by the figures that emerge.
