Eliza Alvarez

Over the past three years, I have explored diverse themes including memory, the body, place and identity through interdisciplinary approaches between sculpture and textiles. My works often take on the form of entangled ropes or strings made from found fabrics and objects. Central to my work is a notion of ‘accident in art’ expressed through the process of making such as macramé, rope making or platting of techniques and skills. I draw inspiration from my own experiences to tell stories about the significance of exchanges and interactions with other individuals from different cultural background in our daily lives.
