Lucia Pizzani

Born in 1975 in Caracas, Venezuela
Lives and works in London, UK

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.

She is based in London, where she completed a Master in Fine Arts at the Chelsea College of Arts in 2009. In 2013 she received the XII Eugenio Mendoza Award and the Emerging Artist Award by the Association of International Art Critics AICA Venezuelan-Chapter and in 2006 she received the 2nd National Young Award Salon FIA. Also this year she received a Special Mention at the “Region 0” Video Art Festival in NYC. Her work is included in important public and private collections such as the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) (USA-Venezuela), the Essex collection for Art from Latin America (ESCALA) (Essex, UK) and the MOLAA Museum of Latin American Art (Los Angeles, USA) among others.
