Through her work, Liza wants to build a bridge towards the tragedy within ourselves and the world. The images we prefer to look away from, the untold stories and repressed feelings. Liza explores how we relate to our own body and other bodies within an unjust world. Despite the confrontational themes, Liza is interested in the nuance of things. Balancing on the border of turmoil and stillness, tragedy and comedy, chaos and control, distance and proximity, connection and disconnection. She attempts to illuminate and embody both the fragility and resilience of the human condition. With a poetic hope to (re)find the harmony within ourselves and with each other.
Liza got inspired by the concept of the 'fragmented body' from philosopher Jacques Lacan. A body that can be constructed by an imaginary anatomy. During New Adventures (2023), Liza wants to explore how the body moves when it exceeds its own anatomical borders. How it can adapt or defend itself from all circumstances that makes it vulnerable. The inviolable body as an utopy within a dystopian landscape.
