Biography

Anita Xanthou was born in Volos. The main characteristic in her work is motion. Nothing is stagnant, everything is according the Heraklitus notion of continuous flow.

She makes musical installations, Aeolic constructions and kinetic objects, using a wide range of materials based on the five elements Ether – Fire – Air – Water – Earth

Xanthou’s interest in the lows of Nature is a constant in her work. She exploits the primary energy sources water, light and air-sources that provide her with the basic material to begin the imaginary exploration of their qualities and the laws of physics that govern them. She then creates marvelous constructions of motion, light and sound. For Xanthou, art is a broad field of knowledge that is acquired through an empirical relationship with the wealth of information inherent in nature.
