Lucia Pizzani’s (b. Caracas, 1975) multi-media practice draws on the expressive potential of research into historical, cultural and environmental issues that span geography and time. Her working process responds to the subject she examines, from Venezuelan legends of metamorphosis to a suffragette attack on an orchid greenhouse at Kew Gardens, resulting in a body of work that is as likely to include bygone methods like collodion wet plate photography, as video and sculpture. Recent exhibitions and commissions include: The Photographers Gallery and The Cultivist In London, Fundación Marso, (México City) and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo MAC (Santiago de Chile). Guest lectures and talks include: Studio Voltaire, Sothebys MFA and Latin American House in London and Fundación Cisneros and Instituto Armando Reverón in Caracas. Currently, an important group of Pizzani’s works is on view at MoCo Hotel des Collections, Montpellier, as part of Mecaro: Amazonía in the Petitgas Collection. Pizzani lives and works in London where she completed her MFA, Chelsea College of Arts.
