Frank Lloyd Wright once stated, “Tip all the world on its side, and everything will land in Los Angeles.” I instantly imagined this when speaking with Ariana Papademetropoulos. The fragments of Los Angeles landing in the wake of her arrival. In October 2019, she spoke with me while she was painting in Athens in preparation for her first solo exhibition, which would be held at the Breeder gallery. It seems like a lifetime ago, but she continued with Unweave a Rainbow at Vito Schnabel in New York. The show was closed in January. She also co-directed Ouverture of Something That Never Ended, a miniseries that Gucci’s Gus Van Sant/Alessandro Michele directed for the SS21 collection. She was most recently in Cornwall as an artist in residence at New St Ives School. Papademetropoulos has been a global artist since our first conversation. But, it is not difficult to see how her career has gotten so far away from Hollywood, where she was born. She grew up in Los Angeles and has always had an intimate relationship with reality. LA is a place where it’s possible to create any kind of existence. Find out more about the artist works by checking her Instagram.
