Lida Driva (GR)

Lida Driva is an architect|artist based in London. Throughout her studies she has been engaged with the understanding of emergent territorial formations, the exploration of uncanny spaces and she has always been interested in the multidisciplinary approach of architecture and its multiple reflection on art. After working on architectural collages she started experimenting more with digital and analogue collage as a way of creating more conceptual and atmospheric narratives that refer to a parallel elusive universe. Her stories are usually inspired by the urban character of contemporary cities , nature as an opposition to this generalised urbanism, strong unconscious desires, imaginary places and often have psychogeographical, surrealistic and symbolic references. Her collage images are characterised by a dreamy, poetic essence that is often combined with a slight melancholic, nostalgic feeling.
