Through living materials, sculpture, photography, drawing, and installation Liana Nigri's work is mostly inspired by elements of nature versus the idea of time passage—and therefore, the notion of impermanence. In that sense, her research consists in observing the changes on the surface of plants and/or human skin in the course of their subsequent life cycle. Through this process her work invites the audience to take a closer look at life in the perspective of decay that reveals beauty where never imaged before.
In 2016 Nigri held a residency at Despina in Rio de Janeiro, following her Summer Studio Residency at SVA in New York the year prior. In 2015 Nigri held her first solo show at Natura Innovation Hub in New York and has contributed to group exhibitions at SVA and Cipriani in New York, Casa Samambaia in São Paulo, Brazil, and LZ Studio in Rio de Janeiro.
