Lilia Ziamou is intrigued by the possibilities and impossibilities that emerge when existing boundaries are challenged.
The confines of the physical body have been at the core of her art practice and she has been exploring physical and digital transformations and manipulations. Her work addresses themes of identity, self-expression, beauty, and decay.
Her creative process parallels the concept behind her work by combining physical and digital forms and processes. In her three-dimensional work, she combines digital fabrication and smart materials with traditional art-making processes such as stone carving, molding in clay, and casting in plaster and cement. To create her digital compositions, she physically and digitally manipulates photographs of her sculptures.
Lilia Ziamou’s recent solo exhibitions include Gallery 7, Athens, Greece; Elga Wimmer, New York, NY; Tenri Gallery, New York, NY; The Consulate General of Greece in New York, NY; The John Jay College Art Gallery, New York, NY. Recent group exhibitions include Sidney Mishkin Gallery, New York, NY; Museum of Arts and Design, New York, NY; The Business Design Centre, London, UK; BHQFU Gallery, New York, NY; Four Walls Gallery, Seoul, South Korea. Her work has been reviewed in Art in Print, The Independent, WNYE, World Sculpture News, and other publications.
