Lucia Pizzani (Caracas) is a Venezuelan artist, living and working in London.
Pizzani’s practice is an expressive and mixed media approach involving the body, performance, and self that are translated into photography, video and sculpture. She deals with organic and environment enquiries, as she studied biology at the CERC center of Columbia University (NY), and uses it as a device to investigate and expose gender issues inspired in historical research.
She has exhibited internationally in museums such as Sala Mendoza, Jacobo Borges Museum, Galería de Arte Nacional, Espacio Monitor and Abra (Caracas), House of Egorn (Berlin), Art Exchange at Essex University (Colchester), Mo.Co Montpellier Contemporain (Montpellier), Noorderlicht Photography (Groningen), TEA Espacio de las Artes (Tenerife), Queens Museum and Exit Art (New York), MOLAA Museum Of Latin American Art (Los Angeles), the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Vigo, MARCO (Vigo), among others.
We met Lucia in March, during the opening of Mecarõ. Amazonia in the Petitgas Collection. The exhibition, whose title means “ the spirit of the forest ” in the Krahô language, was curated by Vincent Honoré with Anna Kerekes and Jacqueline Kok at MO.CO. Montpellier.
