Lilia Ziamou is a multimedia artist who uses digital technologies to liberate the female body from conventional forms and meanings. She creates sculptures, public artworks, photographs, clothing and digital drawings that evoke fragmented bodies and challenge preconceptions.
Ziamou’s source fragments come from art history and her body, from anatomical models, mannequins, and her earlier sculptures. She works with materials ranging from traditional stone like marble, alabaster, and limestone to textiles of her own design. She applies 3D modeling, digital fabrication and other digital techniques to distort and manipulate the original fragments, transforming them into new entities.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
