ABOUT THE ARTIST

DANIELLE GEORGIOU makes the BODY the material and protagonist of her performances.  

Combining video, dance, and live performance to create a mirror in which to demand authenticity from the self, Danielle incorporates pop culture references and mechanically mediated techniques to explore contemporary gender dynamics, the intensely personal nature of identity, and the puzzles of vulnerability, deformity, and beauty. 


The resulting growing body of work is organized around the premise of transforming images of the self and producing unique and individualized portraits.
