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.


Her work is on these recent surveys of Venezuelan art: “Panorama, Arte Emergente en Venezuela” published by Telefónica Foundation and “Nuevo País de las Artes“ edited by Banesco. Shel will also be part of the upcoming book by curator Cecilia Fajardo-Hill  titled “Remains – Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction”. Her works is on view at the Moco Hotel des Collections in Montpellier as part of “Mecaro: Amazonía in the Petitgas Collection”. Other highlights of her international exhibition history include spaces such as: ArtExchange, Essex University (Colchester), Cecilia Brunson, Stephen Lawrence Gallery and Photofusion (London), House of Egorn (Berlin), Noorderlicht House of Photography (Groningen), ARCO (Madrid), Loop Festival (Barcelona), Exit Art and Queens Museum (NY), Museo Jacobo Borges, Sala Mendoza, Abra, Espacio Monitor and Galería de Arte Nacional (Caracas), Universidad de los Andes, Galería Fernando Pradilla and ArtBo (Bogotá), Fundación Marso and Zona Maco Sur (Ciudad de México), Sindicato (Santo Domingo) and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo MAC (Santiago de Chile) among others.
