Happy 2009! The year’s first guest blogger is Georgia Kotretsos, an artist based in Athens, Greece. Kotretsos holds an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2004) and a BFA from The Durban Institute of Technology (2000) in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. She is a founding agent of Boots Contemporary Art Space, in St. Louis, MO and the founder and editor-in-chief of Boot Print, a publication dedicated to contemporary art and published by Boots.
In her work, Kotretsos has been exploring the interdependence and interrelation of the artwork/viewer, attempting to bind the two entities together. By challenging boundaries, authorship, and authority, she has created a body of work that is characterized by its conceptual consistency. Kotretsos has exhibited her work in South Africa, the United States, and Europe.
