The Doll Dance, Video Still 2014

It seems like only yesterday that our current AIR Liz started with us here at Edinburgh College! However, somewhat embarrassingly, it has in fact been 3 months!!!!!

During that 3 months Liz has been extremely busy producing work in the AIRetc… studio as well as doing talks for CAP students and helping with tutorials and interviews for next years intake of CAPers. Oh and she joined us on the CAP Berlin trip in March! Wow it has been so busy intact that we have completely neglected the blog and haven’t even introduced you all to Liz or her practice. So lets get back on track.

Having previously gained a Btec Foundation at Edinburgh College in 2009 Liz graduated from the HND Contemporary Art course in June 2011. Below are a couple of works from her CAP graduate exhibition.

In september 2011 Liz began the 1st of 3years at Edinburgh College of Art having gained a direct entry place into the 2nd year of the Intermedia BAhons Degree course. During her time at ECA Liz developed an extensive body of work dealing primarily concerns around the portrayal of women in contemporary culture media, working variously between collage, sculpture, digital moving image and text.

Liz’s work often considers feminist ideas and what it means to young people today. In an age where the media dominates the thoughts, feelings and actions of many in today’s society and of young people in particular, she allows popular culture and found material on the Internet to inform much of her practice.

Liz will be bringing us up to date with recent developments in the studio and her experience of all aspects of the residency over the next few weeks and months. In the meantime you can see more of her previous work via the link below.

PLEASE BE ADVISED Liz’s work deals with adult themes which some people may find offensive. The work contains explicit content in the form of musical lyrics.
