Liz Lake

Liz Lake

Liz Lake studied printmaking at the RCA and her work combines print, sculpture and installation. She has been previously shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize and has recently exhibited pieces at Wolverhampton Art Gallery in response to their geology archive. Liz is based in the midlands, but this winter will be in-residence at Chisenhale Studios, London.

A river once ran through my veins was a new fictional installation for Tilbury Cruise Terminal. The pieces were made from an imagined future where years of silt have long since swallowed the estuary. Icecaps of polystyrene, islands of Buddleia and colonies of crystallized snails now proliferate the surface. Digging down, geological core samples reveal strata of landfill, concrete, aggregate and ash.
