Maria Soroniati is a Greece born visual artist currently residing in Scotland. While her medium of preference is photography, her practice extends in the fields of sculpture, installation and participatory art.
Using as a starting point, her experience and observations (both on a personal and a collective level), she distinguishes the world in two facets: what is “seen” and what lies “unseen” beneath its surface. Using the notion of “apparition” she attempts to bring to the forefront those hidden and fragmented realities that reside within the self or the societies that inform and construct the self.
To achieve this she uses psychology, philosophy, poetry, literature and politics as a contextual basis for her work and creates uncanny imagery and vacant signs that urge the audience to fill in the gaps with their own readings derived from their own stories and experiences.
