Lilian Mattuschka, born 1989 in Austria, lives and works as Visual Artist and event manager in Italy.
She studied Graphic Arts at Accademia delle Belle Arti in Florence, Design at IED in Turin, Contemporary Jewelry at Alchimia, Florence, where she graduated with a Master in Fine Arts. She is currently working on the master thesis of her second master in Cultural Management at the University of Applied Arts Vienna, course Art & Economy.
Already during her studies, wood has become her material and guide.
In wood she seeks the limit - physically as well as conceptually.
How fine can one go before suffering the breaking point?
Constricting body sculptures as metaphor of the ruling cultural norms and mechanisms of behavior in society.
From life - to rigidity - to movement – chains carved out from a trunk and made to embrace the body. Each chain is unique depending on the nature of the original trunk: this seems suggesting the final embrace that it wants to become.
A research around boundaries - to feel, to trigger, to provoke them.
Her works are experiments between jewelry, sculpture, photography, video and performance with the main focus on the body.
