About the artist
Zoë Paul (°1987 in London, lives and works in Greece) works with a diverse array of materials including textile, sculpture, drawing and found objects. Her main focus is to explore domestic spaces, and how these have changed through technology. Her work aims to examine our relationship with tradition and explores shifts in perception around the value of an object according to time and context. Paul often works with simple timeless materials and techniques such as clay, weaving, and drawing that have been used throughout centuries and can be sourced and crafted applying very little technology, but never in a nostalgic way. At the Breeder Gallery in Athens, Paul has developed a project titled La Perma-Perla Kraal Emporium, a collaborative work that invites visitors to sit around a long table and make clay beads, thereby becoming the work at the same time as creating it. In this experiential and immersive environment, ceramic teapots and cups made by Paul are used to serve tea to participants. This project has been reiterated at Spike Island in Bristol and will be shown at the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow. In the coming months, Paul will explore games and how they affect communication and social relations. Zoë Paul studied at Camberwell College of Art followed by the Royal College of Art. Paul grew up between the Greek island of Kithira and Oxford, and currently lives and works in Athens. Paul’s recent group exhibitions include Unorthodox at the Jewish Museum, New York (2016), and The Equilibrists at the New Museum, New York and the DESTE Foundation, Athens (2016).
