Based between Athens, GR and Los Angeles, CA, Polina Miliou (b. 1990) creates playful sculptures that work both as artworks and as functional objects or furniture. Trough tactile play, she transforms everyday materials into unique handmade objects, while treating each piece as a character. Miliou explores the cuteness and awkwardness in monolithic shapes that project forms of primitivism and anonymous art and architecture. She holds an architecture diploma from National Technical University of Athens, Greece. She has worked on various design studios, such as Walker Workshop, Standard and Willo Perron in Los Angeles and in 2020 she participated in Sundance Film Festival as a production designer for the mixed reality performance Anti-Gone by artist Theo Triantafyllidis.
