MBUS Live Art Talk with Lisu VegaMonday 5/17
Lisu Vega is a multidisciplinary artist working with engraving, sculpture, installation, and fashion art. Her work explores ideas of sustainability, migration, memory, and identity.
Her commitment to the environment is central to her practice. She is constantly exploring recycled materials with the goal to achieve a zero-waste practice, while examining the relevance of traditional processes in the context of contemporary art.
Vega’s beginnings on experimental engraving opened for her the possibility of working on multiple materials, such as paper, fabric, and metal, becoming an incentive to move out of the canvas and going to tri-dimensional work. Also, her interest in better understanding her own identity led her to the exploration of the relationship between fiber and the human body, and to go beyond the body to the space that surrounds us.
