"In a continuous fluidity and movement, Ikonomopoulou’s artistic research moves around several thematic centres, beyond representation, keeping all of her works connected through conceptual lines. Her artworks do not create specificities but are open to continuous renewal. Her artistic practice hence cannot be considered as linear but rhizomatic. In this sense her new body of work, deriving from the multiple conceptual midpoints her previous ones has produced and adopting the more experimental and fragmental form of études continue, transform and renew her research in the idea of border, connecting the fear of the Other and the need for safety with the immense –limitless– amount of information we receive in a daily basis."

Anthology - opening speech by Kees Weeda

On my work table at home is a beautiful Perspex book display stand, the kind you see in better quality bookshops. The stand holds a book, an indecipherable book, which I often read. The pages are covered with lines, dashes, full stops, but they do not form letters. And yet I read it. I probably need to offer some explanation, even for a group of people for whom metaphors and paradoxes are everyday fare. The book, really more the size of a brochure, was made by two artists: Maria Ikonomopoulou and Anastasia Mina. They both made 6 drawings, and made 1 together. The book has two front covers and no back: when you have seen the work of one artist, you have to turn the book around to see the other’s work. Or keep turning the pages, in which case you’ll see half of the book upside down. Which, at the same time, subtly raises the issue of top and bottom in abstract art. It is produced on Moleskine Folio 100gsm acid-free paper. The cover is made from top quality Saunders Waterford... read more

100th anniversary I Kathimerini

During the last 10 years I often use editions of the Greek daily newspapers I Kathimerini as material for my artworks. A lot of editions my mother used to send me by post and more recent editions, which dear friends are collecting for me, have been transformed into art pieces.
Since the news paper is celebrating his 100th anniversary this year, Maria Katsounaki and Maria Kakaounaki have made a reportage about the readers. Video by Chronis Tsichlakis and Kostis Papadakis 100th anniversary I Kathimerini

Cover book Knot to Knot

I feel honored to have the image of my work 'Need to Grow-2' on the cover of the book 'Kompo ton kompo' (knot to knot) by Dimitra Louka.
It is a collection of narrated stories, written in the idiom of the speaking individuals. People of the Greek countryside with no higher education are telling their life stories by using the astonishing power of the Greek language. The book is beautifully published by Kichli Publishing.

opening word by Landa van Vliet

We don't know any better than mythology being thing of the past; tales of gods and goddesses, love, betrayal, war, births that happened centuries ago, and deaths of heroes and the vanquished, with endlessly branching family trees. No one needs an explanation to understand myths - tales of earthly and metaphysical societies, which are translated into contemporary retellings generation after generation. In the work of Maria Ikonomopoulou, we see the world around us. Greek by birth, lucky lady, from a family tree forged by a civilization thousands of years old. Do myths run in her blood?

What do we see? An amalgam of techniques and processes; reworkings of Greek newspapers, paper cutouts, embroideries and drawings on paper and photographs, photos, yarn, wool, beeswax - an oeuvre and a life of endless patience and surrender. Like an industrious curly-haired bee, every day she processes her observations and fashions them into a labyrinth at the hive's very... read more

Travel Messages

The project Travel Messages commissioned by the Kunstgebouw has started. Citizens of the neighbourhood Hoofdsteden (capitals) in Vlaardingen are sharing their travel stories with me.

Why do we travel? What is it that we are looking for? Why do we need to share our travel experiences with others? How it comes that we observe differently our travel places than our living places?

Those are some of the questions we try to find answers on. Every week a new story is to read at the web site of the local free press.

City flowers

Growing Care (Rotterdam)

During some months Ikonomopoulou took pictures of outer wall gardens that citizens of Rotterdam individually take care of and offer tp the public space.

At the City Art Center presents the installation City flowers of cut out prints as flowers and creates her own garden in the shape of climbing plants.

In a serie of other works details of the outer wall gardens, first names of their owners and names of the plants become all together a lace of cut out paper.

'self-portrait' 1997.
ink on glass, acrylic on canvas, tin

A face drawn on a pane of glass that closed the passageway between the two spaces was superimposed on a painted portrait on the back wall. To make it impossible for viewers to make out the space between both portraits, a piece of perforated tin was placed behind the fish eye that reflected a distorted image of the viewer's eye.
