Lizi Sanchez's body of work is often characterised by very detailed research about language and typography, the use and the meaning of words transforming and evolving throughout time and history. Sánchez seeks how words change depending on the context and the intention of their use. Along her trajectory, Sánchez has made extensive use of advertisement aesthetics, exploring the imbrications of meaning between the visual systems of art and consumer culture. In her work she has also explored figures of speech, scientific texts and poems to name a few examples.
Lizi Sanchez was born in Lima (Peru) and lives and works in London. She has a Masters of Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College, London. She is co-founder of Museo en Residencia. Her work has been shown in both public and private institutions. Among them at Fashion and Textile Museum (London, 2019), Galerie de l’IESA (Paris, 2018), ICPNA (Lima, 2017), the John Moores Painting Prize (Liverpool, 2016), Drawing Room (London, 2014), Whitechapel Gallery (London, 2015) and Studio Voltaire (2010). Her work is featured in the forthcoming book Remains-Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction, edited by Cecilia Fajardo Hill.
