Katerina Undo is an artist living and working in Athens. She studied at Athens School of Law, Economics and Political Sciences, at Panteion University of Social & Political Sciences (MA in Economics), at Athens School of Fine Arts, and LUCA School of Arts, Brussels (MA in Art). After long years of work in the economics consulting sector, her parallel occupation with the arts evolved into a full-time commitment since 2010.
The notion of the hearing body is the main focus of her work seeking for the interrelationships between subjects-objects, inside-outside as acts of ratiocination. Her practice highlights subjective sensible properties and mechanisms that reflect on the meaning to hear and to be heard. The production of relational exchanges in her work supports the contact with the vital energies animating the reality that situates the person as a vibrant and vibrating matter. Through questioning relational intensities she introduces additional norms that unsettle singularity, as well as merge insensible and intelligible, social and personal, human and machine. Her recent projects refer to the fluid interchange of signification when sound is transmitted directly into the inner ear of the listener.
Katerina was a resident artist of Overtoon-Platform for Sound Art (2015), Q-02 (2012), Brussels, and laureate of the HISK/Higher Institute for Fine Art (2013-2014), Ghent.
