Stephanie Andreou is a video and installation artist currently working in New York. She is interested in how political and cultural states influence personal experience and how they form the self. Born in England and raised in Cyprus, her life has always consisted of a mix of both worlds. These two aspects of her life have always provided an uncertainty and an imbalance, never quite choosing a side but identifying with both. Andreou has exhibited her work in England, Cyprus and New York. Her initial creative focus was sculpture, however as her practice evolved she began incorporating video, sound and installation into her work. She is currently completing an MFA in Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts, where she has received a scholarship for academic and creative excellence and works as a department library manager.
