Dimitra Vamiali works also in the gap between artist, curator and writer to create spaces of potentiality, as an aspect of the experience of individuation, “becoming” complex and in flux. Throughout her work as both an artist and curator, Dimitra Vamiali seems to attempt to trace the parameters and dimensions that hold the potential for change and transformation. Since 2004 she is part of Vamiali's gallery established by Sofia Vamiali where they have organised solo and group exhibitions with international contemporary artists.
