Lito Apostolakou is a London-based artist, with a background in history, working with drawing, assemblage structures, moving image and installation. Her work is research-based and site-responsive, often fragile, engaging with the architecture of remembered space, with states of mind, and multi-layered narratives about memory and place. 

 

Among other locations, her work has been hosted in Bristol's Clifton Pavilion, the River Thames foreshore, London Piccadilly's Princes Arcade, a building site in Peckham, a 18th-century distillery in Bow, the courtyard of an Italian Palazzo, the gardens of a north London 19th-century ink maker, and her home studio where her immersive installation Archive of Daydreams was shown in the early spring evenings of 2022.

Lito has been a Londoner since 1988.
