Regina Mamou is a Chicago-based visual artist working at the intersection of photography, installation, writing, and research practices.
Mamou engages in a researcher’s process that is tied to the search for the aesthetics of place and the unconventional aspects of locations which are predominately psychological in nature.
In 2009, Mamou received a Fulbright fellowship to explore navigational methods and memory in Amman, Jordan. Selected exhibitions include Makan Art Space in Amman, Jordan; Action Field Kodra's Eleventh Exhibition of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki, Greece; and the online "The Chicago Project" at Catherine Edelman Gallery. Her solo exhibition “Unfortunately, It Was Paradise,” at the Historic Water Tower Gallery in Chicago, Illinois, was selected as a Critics' Picks, Chicago on artforum.com in November 2013. Most recently, she participated in “Distant Images, Local Positions,” a group exhibition at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space, New York, New York, which opened in January, 2014.
Mamou holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.
