is the founder of Yellow Brick – research a project space/residency devoted to artist's research and playground/testing ground for exhibition making.Her personal work entangles materiality through methodologies of exploring, collecting and archiving, resulting in the creation of sculptural manifestations around the ideas of topos. For Sifostratoudaki, materiality stands as a broader term for framing geography, object, humans, language and gestures and sculpture as a moving organism.

creates sculptures that test the limits and properties of materials. In his works, familiar forms result in odd and uncunny ones, due to material manipulation. His references to architecture, literature, cinema and music incorporate narratives as structural elements of the work itself. He teaches art in primary schools.
