Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva is a site-specific installation artist working across the varied media of sculpture, installation, video and sound, photography and architectural interventions. Her materials range from the unusual to the ordinary and the ephemeral to the precious; they include organic materials, foodstuffs and precious metals. Central to her practice is a response to the particularities of place; its history, locale, environment and communities.
Over the past ten years, she has exhibited extensively and realized numerous commissions nationally and internationally, in gallery spaces, museums and within the public realm. Recent sites and commissions include Pied a Terre London, Gloucester Cathedral Gloucester, Towner Gallery Eastbourne, Southgate Bath, Kilmainham Gaol Museum Ireland, 51st Venice Biennale and Public Room Skopje.
Elpida Hadzi-Vasileva is representing Republic of Macedonia at the 55th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia 2013, with Silentio Pathologia selected by the Ministry of Culture of Macedonia.
