S/HE, a set of digital prints on archival paper exhbited as part of MOON, Art First
Liliane Lijn has worked across media -- kinetic sculpture, film, performance and collage -- to explore language, mythology and the relationship between light and matter. In 2013, she was short-listed to produce a sculpture for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square and her work featured in Republic of the Moon, curated by The Arts Catalyst, London. Lijn's work is now on view in the exhibition, Moon, at Art First in London, through 31st January 2015.
