Jazmin Charalambous (°1991, London) operates on the cusp of art and architecture. She crafts situations to provoke flashes of understanding between people, using analytical techniques to create site-specific works. Her practice highlights the importance of in-between places and the necessity of embracing incidents and oddities within design. Currently based in Rotterdam, she is developing works for public spaces through sculpture, landscape interventions and community action.
