Vana Kostayola is an interdisciplinary artist testing performative situations, inspired by theatre, dance and contemporary art.
She co-founded KavecS with Kostis Stafylakis in 2004, and their work was presented amongst others, in Palais de Tokyo, Steirischer Herbst in Graz, Monodrome 3d Athens Biennale , Media Impact at the 4th Moscow Biennial.
Compagnie KavecS was established in Geneva in 2013 as a non profit association for the creation of performances and workshops.
After a bachelor from the Athens School of Fine Arts, an MA Fine Art in Central Saint Martins and an MA Interactive Media in Goldsmiths University, the artist was found in Athens collaborating with theatre and dance groups in parallel with her art projects. After some years she moves to Geneva to go back to studies and depend on readings and writings in an MA of Critical Curatorial Cybermedia. Working as an art teacher, she is always interested in education and pedagogy and always in conflict when trying to teach “discipline” while teaching freedom of expression and respect on personal feelings and ideas.
