BIOGRAPHY
Polixeni Papapetrou is a photographic artist who looks at the relationship between history, contemporary culture, identity and being. Her subject matter has included Elvis Presley fans, Marilyn Monroe impersonators, circus performers, body builders and more recently the cultural positioning of childhood. By focusing on the theatricality and the face of identity, Papapetrou explores an unconscious realm between the real and the imaginary, archetype and free play and photography's capacity to bridge truth and fiction.

She has held over 50 solo exhibitions and participated in over 100 group exhibitions in Australia, Asia, Europe and the US. Surveys of her work were held at the Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney (2011) and Centre for Contemporary Photography, Melbourne (2013). She has participated in major international photography festivals including Dong Gang International Photo Festival, Korea (2014); Fotografica Bogota, Colombia (2013); Photofestival Noorderlicht, The Netherlands (2012); 3rd Biennale Photoquai, Le musée du quai Branly, Paris (2011); The Month of Photography, Bratislava (2010); Pingyao International Photography Festival, Pingyao, Shanxi, China (2010); Athens Festival of Photography, Athens (2010); Fotofreo, Fremantle Festival of Photography, Perth (2008); Seoul International Photography Festival, Seoul (2008); and Le Mois de la Photo, Montreal (2005).

Papapetrou has been the recipient of numerous grants from the Australia Council for the Arts and Arts Victoria. She was the recipient of the Windsor Art Award (2015), the Josephine Ulrick and Win Shubert Photography Award (2009) and the Albury Regional Art Gallery National Photographic Award (2003). Her work is held in public, corporate and private collections in Australia and internationally.
