ARTIST AND FILMMAKER

Elleni Sclavenitis’s work considers the world through the lens of history and explores repressed historical events in order to expose the power structures underlying conceptions of historical truth. Through all of her projects, Sclavenitis aims to show how the past reverberates throughout the present in significant and often unacknowledged ways. She has exhibited at venues including Kasseler Dokfest in Kassel, Germany; Schikaneder Kinosaal in Vienna, Austria; REDCAT and The Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles; Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach, CA; The Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC; The Tallgrass Film Festival in Wichita, KS; The Pocahontas Reframed Film Festival at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts; and the Santa Fe Film Festival, among others. She has worked as a film editor in Los Angeles and taught in the art department at Otis College of Design. She received her MFA from California Institute of the Arts. She is based in Denver, Colorado.
