Naïstini Valaydon is a multimedia artist working primarily with pho-tography, film and installation. Her work explores the human con-dition and psychology through a complex study of the human body and mind. Naïstini’s work explores interpersonal relationships, love, sex, ro-mance and femininity. Accordingly, all these themes have one point of convergence which is, human violence and trauma.
Therefore a recurring examination in her works is, how to exist and to co-exist in this current society.
Her artworks are known to be very visceral as she makes use of her personal life as a field of research, which provides her work with authenticity and relatability. The aim of her work is to create a cathartic moment to the audi-ence allowing space and time for education and understanding of the self. Naïstini uses the contemporary art scene as a terrain for activism as it is the only place where a philosophical and political idea can meet and be discussed visually.
