Fani Parali (b. 1983 Greece) lives and works in London. She studied BA Sculpture at Camberwell College of Arts and completed her postgraduate studies at the Royal Academy Schools.
Parali’s practice includes sculpture, sound, performance, large-scale painting, drawing and moving image. Parali creates situations where different medium components are choreographed, often through directing and collaborating with performers, where she employs the use of recorded audio that gets lip-synched. Parali wants to create a sense of intimacy, shared aloneness and warmth that can be felt through the mediation of the voices she imagines, creates and communicates. The performers and the materials aspire to transcend and overcome their identities, dimensions and realities, to be at the same time other-wordly and deeply human.
