Liliana Velasquez is an interdisciplinary creator: artist, comedian, writer, dancer and producer of cultural events. The exhibition shown at o.T. Projektraum is a collection of self-reflective collages influenced by the cities that she has lived in. Using recycled materials, many of which are old advertising images found on the street as well as personal collections, the artist transforms them into surreal mindscapes that combine her passionate imagination and day-to-day truth.
Velasquez began to develop this form of collaging in her early twenties at the Art Students League of New York City. Her work is informed and inspired by the feminine form discovery of self and a healthy transformation after tragedy. This is her third solo exhibition in Berlin.
