About Liz Glynn

Liz Glynn’s multi-dimensional practice reanimates historic moments and looks critically at our contemporary material relationship to these events. Her works have been inspired by topics spanning a broad chronological and geographical spectrum, including the Egyptian Revolution, Buckminster Fuller’s Geodesic Domes, rare collections in the Metropolitan Museum, and the Trojan Empire. Her participatory performances are frequently coupled with series of sculptural objects inspired by artifacts, deliberately constructed from flimsy and disposable materials. Glynn, who has an enduring interest in cycles of emergence and decline in civilization and their presentations, has been linked with the legacy of Conceptual Art and Institutional Critique.
