STELIX

STELIX logoSTELIX is an art duo comprised of myself – Stavroula Kounadea (known to most as STAV) and Felicity Ford (colloquially known as FELIX). I can wire up a plug and use a wire stripper as effectively as I can bake a dozen cupcakes; Felix has hand-knitted a speaker system and is building a radio according to the instructions of a 1950s ladybird book for boys. Mixing our worlds in scores, DIY learning programmes, performances and installations, we’ve made artwork about such things as handbags, mixtapes, sewing machines, food-colours and making our own pants.

Coming respectively from performing arts and sound art backgrounds, we share a passion for fun, baking, beer, turbans, crafts, road-trips and practices that collapse the borders between ordinary life and extraordinary art.
