In the summer she showed in the group exhibition “Being Human” at neo;gallery (2017) As a starting point for her work she referred to the poem “Preveza”, written by a Greek poet Kostas Karyotakiswhich examines the concept of existence. The installation she made for the show , critically commented on the drowning of thousands of Syrian refugees during 2016.

Thaleia held her first solo exhibition Without in Greece at the art multi-site Tiny Will in 2014. Her work explores the relationships between the concepts of life and death, memory and oblivion, through a variety of mediums and found objects; seeking to foster connective strands between art and contemporary life, taking a critical view of social and political issues.
