Stella Baraklianou is a photographic artist and lecturer in photography at School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield, UK. As a practitioner her work engages with issues of escapism and the utopian, through themes of still-life and photographic installations. In this exploration her practice is informed by philosophical themes of memory, duration, immanence; namely by the works of Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, Giorgio Agamben as well as the late work of Roland Barthes. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and abroad, indicatively (‘XS’ at FA Projects, London 2004) including her native Greece (‘Escape from the attic, escape from the crisis’, Visual Arts Festival Kodra, 2010)
She is currently working on a monograph of recent photographic works with a text contribution by John Mullarkey, under the title ‘Orientation’
