Eleni Theodora Zaharopoulos is an interdisciplinary space creature that was raised in Queens by Greeks. She finds meaning in animal totems and spirit beings and is often guided/derailed by magical thinking, shaky faith, and a deck of playing cards. She draws inspiration from people, food, the weather, thrift stores/estate sales/junk shops/the trash in front of your house, all which steer her to imagine projects that are performative, immersive, conceptual, and/or social. Eleni currently spends her time between New York City and Detroit working on collaborative and solo projects that range in shape and size.
