Dimitra Kousteridou(GR,NL) is a multidisciplinary artist, currently lives and works between Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Athens, Greece. Ongoingly works on  site-specific projects and noise improvisation, researching time-based acts as well as installations and relational works involving diverse communities. The core of her interest lies in deconstructing the visual identity of subjects /objects and infusing them with new acoustic character, reinforcing the physical, aural and aesthetic qualities of their soundscape. This often leads to an interdisciplinary format including ephemeral events, interactive handmade synthesizers or fragments of objects, enacting sound as a central element. One can picture the placed situations in her performances to be continuous relationships between different elements of a network that includes bodies, memories and experiences.
