Non-conforming bodies

Liliana Zaharia
About this work

Liliana Zaharia is a multidisciplinary artist, currently undertaking an MA in photography at London College of Communication. Her work takes  on a critical, observational view of the everyday life and explores themes of identity and belonging. Often at the border between documentary and fiction, she uses photography as a main medium in her work whilst exploring video, text or performance in accordance to the project. Central aspects of her research involve the semantics of the everyday and unexceptional, bodily gesture and photography as a document for performance. Liliana’s practice involves long term projects where she develops strong relationships with her subjects in order to enunciate a level of intimacy for her series. Recent works explore the representation of chronic pain through fictive constructions of body posturing  and gestures which are informed by research into the history of art and representation of physical pain.
