Lisa Selby

Artist, Lecturer / academic

Lisa Selby begins with found objects, forms are effectively made anew: traces of former existence are erased and functions are rearticulated. She tackles gendered notions of domesticity and the process in which an inanimate object or space becomes significant. Domestic materials collide, as do representations of physical situations, psychological relationships and dialogues. She is currently researching domestic prototypes, cognitive categorisation, intent and development.
