BORN 1967, NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND, USA

Lisa Kirk has been making art installations and designing interiors for over 25 years. Her paintings, sculptures, videos, and projects express the artist’s obsession with the moral complexities of consumerism, collective fear and trauma, and radical politics. She has described her works as having a visual vocabulary that “references war, popular entertainment, middle-class American violence, and a sentiment of nostalgia for revolt,” admitting that her projects’ materials and process are frequently dissimilar from the others, they are united by the way they address the human condition. Although her work is exhibited in the form of seemingly "real life" installations, her practice can include a performative element; in one instance, Kirk was present during an exhibition to offer aura readings and custom elixirs. Other works include a commercially available perfume named “Revolution,” which lists among its scents tear gas, blood, urine, and burned rubber. Presently, Kirk resides in the Hudson Valley.
