Georgia Sagri lives and works in Athens and New York. She studied music and she holds a diploma in cello, a BA from Athens School of Fine Arts, Athens, and an MFA from Columbia University, New York.

Her practice has been influenced on her engagement on issues of autonomy, empowerment and self-organization. She was a participant artist of documenta14 with the piece titled „Dynamis“ that progressed with a series of workshops of 200 people and concluded on a presentation of 28 sculptures, ten breathing scores and 15 participants on a performance piece of six days that took place simultaneously and in continuum in both Athens and Kassel. In 2011 she was one of the co-organizer of general assembly and Occupy Wall Street movement in NY. She is the founder of the audio-magazine FORTE and SALOON, an ongoing curatorial project. In 2014 she initiated Ύλη[matter]HYLE, a semipublic space in Athens.
