Studio4 Residencies: Liz Lake – Dig/Burn/Build


Event: Thursday 19th January 6.30-8.30pm.

Mapping the interconnected ecologies of material cycles, Liz Lake’s installation demonstrates how the values, uses and physical properties of industrial substances transform over time. In her fieldwork footage, mountains of gypsum are chemically removed from power station gasses ready to be sold as additives for construction or food production; and unwanted incinerator ash finds new life as breezeblock.

A series of sculptures presents these relations in the abstract language of the materials themselves, incorporating concrete, tarmac, copper, plaster and resin in diagram-like composites. This is the first showing of an ongoing project that Liz Lake has been working on during a 3-month residency at Chisenhale Studios.
