Esmeralda Kosmatopoulos is a multi-disciplinary conceptual artist working around language and identity.
She has lived her life surrounded by unique cultures—born in Greece, raised in Paris—she now lives and works in NY. Her work investigates the definition and construction of identities, personal memories and collective histories in the post-Internet age. Influenced by the increasing interplay between physical and virtual spaces, Kosmatopoulos decontextualize everyday-life objects, cultural symbols and behaviors and translates them into the Internet and social media world.
Her work has exhibited in galleries, institutions and public spaces in the North America, Europe and Latin America. Kosmatopoulos also worked alongside socially charged entities such as the Organization of American States (United States) and the Museum Louis Braille (France) to create large-scale installations that raise awareness on social issues.
