Artist Statement

Three words summarize my work: Body, movement, and transformation. After the separation of a marriage of almost 30 years, I began to raise questions about the view of patriarchal society, the objectification, silencing and erasure of women and the body in this context. I regained a close contact with my body and immersed myself in a universe that had been dormant. I was able to better understand my background and the relationship I lived in and started to study feminism. My life experience and the search for cure permeates my artistic processes, where I seek to raise questions about the impositions of the social model in which we live.

I like to explore different mediums in my work in order to spread my message. I am interested in dualities, and I try to address sensitive topics in a non-aggressive way. To intrigue, create some discomfort and to generate curiosity are goals that I seek in my works. I want to generate reflections, to make people think.

I am currently working with video and photo performance, photography, painting, sculpture, and installations. I relate ink, hair, sisal, stones, water, clay, elements of nature with the body. And these elements appear in my work in different ways. I often use my body as a medium in order to provoke sensations, reflections and stimulate changes.

Bio

Liane Roditi (1967) carioca dancer and visual artist, lives and works in Rio de Janeiro.
