Lucia Pizzani Venezuela, b. 1975

Lucia Pizzani lives and works in London. She studied at the Chelsea College of Art and Design in London and Conservation Biology at Columbia University in New York. Pizzani explores historical and literary narratives around femininity, interpreting temporal discourses within the biological continuity of the natural world. Her figures are shape-shifters between humans, plants, and animals. Every human figure, plant, and material element in Pizzani’s universe feeds into the other in endless harmony. She works across a variety of media including photography, film, ceramics, draughtsmanship, performance and installation.

The Tate Collection acquired two works by Lucia Pizzani in 2021. Pizzani looks forward to including black stoneware ceramics in the group exhibition Planet B: Climate Change & the New Sublime curated by Nicholas Bourriaud during the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022. She was the recipient of the “Premio Eugenio Mendoza” (Mendoza Foundation National Award) in Venezuela in 2013.
