Lenia Georgiou is a Cypriot Visual Artist and Art Therapist, born on 30/4/1990 in Adelaide (South Africa).

Her practice is grounded in the field of performance art, installation and painting. She is involved in bi-communal and socially oriented projects, that are an integral part of her work as they derive from her need to "redefine" borders - both physical and mental. Her work usually comments current social, political and cultural issues. Her works often have a nomadic function or a participatory/collaborative art-making. In addition, she has collaborated and participated in performances and residencies with internationally renowned artists while to date she has exhibited in countries such as Italy, Northern Macedonia, Greece and Cyprus. Lenia's work is mostly concerned with issues of displacement, relocation, and the basic human need of shelter. She is also interested in themes like the redefinition of borders, in social issues and in the norms and elements that define an individual's identity.

Lenia currently lives and works as a visual artist and art therapist in Cyprus exhibiting her work at an international level.
