De Kunstenaars

"Lightness?" january - march 2012

Born in 1969 in the USA.

With an emphasis on repetition, formal perfection and materiality, Liza Lou creates unique artworks that refer to spiritual and geo-political tensions that mark our present age. Her most known creation is the monumental Kitchen (1996), a fully equipped replica of a normal kitchen entirely covered with glass beads. This sculptural tableau introduced her trademark medium of glass beads, while simultaneously establishing many of the social themes – such as labour, confinement and human endurance – that continue to underpin her work today.
