Lucía Pizzani Venezuelan, b. 1975

Lucia 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.


Her work, expressed in a variety of media, explores the fragility of the individual and particular experience of women across time and geography. She has shown internationally at museums and galleries such as Sala Mendoza, Museo Jacobo Borges, Galería de Arte Nacional, Espacio Monitor and Abra (Caracas), Fundación Marso (Ciudad de México), House of Egorn (Berlin),  Stephen Lawrence Gallery and Photofusion (London). Prizes and residencies that have been granted to her include: Residency at Fundación Marso, Ciudad de México (2019); Grants for the Arts del Arts Council England (2017); Hotshoe/Photofusion magazine prize, London (2014); AICA-Venezuela (Asociación Internacional de Críticos de Arte) Emerging Artist Prize, Capítulo Venezuela, Caracas (2013).
