Selina Naouma (RCA Photography MA) (b. 1995, Berlin) is a Greek-Austrian, multidisciplinary, feminist artist. She plays and experiments with ideas of entanglement of the universe, the embodiment of identity, and intra-action with the Intimate and the Other.
Her work varies from photography to animation, moving image to sculpture. Somewhere between attraction and disgust, birth and decay, reality and fantasy, she creates colourfully sinister imaginings that question existing power structures and belief systems in contemporary society.
Selina first studied architecture at the Technical University of Berlin and obtained a BA in visual communication at the University of Applied Sciences Europe, Berlin. Currently living in London, she recently completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art.

She hosts a monthly radio show with Aaja music and RTM FM, exploring the sound aspects of my work with a third which will connect all three starting at Cubitt radio this October. Krystle was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries (2021), have had work acquired for the Government Art Collection and was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths/ACME award.
