Lito Apostolakou is an installation and mixed-media artist, with a background in history, working with assemblage structures, drawing, and moving image. Her art practice engages with the architecture of remembered space, in particular, domestic interiors and objects as archives of intimacy shaped by memories and fictions. Her Archive of Daydreams, a participatory art installation and piece of apartment art (2020-1), weaved together detritus, found objects and stories to immerse the viewer in a multi-sensory environment. In 2021, she has been selected to be artist-in-residence at Princes Arcade, London Piccadilly, with her participatory installation Clothes You'll Never Wear, as part of Westminster's Voids Activation & Pop-up Project.
Lito has been a Londoner since 1988.
