Artist Statement

Liza Grobler (b. 1974) lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa. Through her artworks, she explores the dialogue between inner and outer landscape. Her installations create dialogues with the spaces in which they are displayed and explore the connections between people, artworks and the world around us. The viewer is encouraged to travel with her into an imaginary world where fact and fiction becomes one. In this world, everything is in flux and anything is possible. The objects, images and installations are constructed through collaboration, interaction and exchange. Gallery exhibitions, projects and interventions are integrated components that cross-reference one another.
Grobler received a MAFA (cum laude) from Stellenbosch University in 1999. She has attended residencies in Norway, Finland, the United States, Mexico, Switzerland, Belgium and France. Her work is included in numerous corporate and private collections, including the Francis Greenberger Collection (USA), Frans Masereel Centrum (Belgium), Benetton Collection (Italy) and Nando’s International (UK, Australia and USA). To date, she has had thirteen acclaimed solo exhibitions and initiated numerous site-specific and collaborative interventions in South Africa and abroad.
