Thaleia Kavvada explores the relationships between the concepts of life and death, memory and oblivion, being and nihility, through a variety of mediums and found objects. Her work seeks to foster connective strands between art and contemporary life, taking a critical view of social and political issues. Through the concepts of symbolism and dualism as key features, she discusses the alienation and loss of identity of contemporary man. Her most recent works deal with perceptions of the self, as well as the state of loneliness, as a fundamental part of the human condition.
