Liza Lou: Leaves of Glass

Liza Lou explores themes of American popular culture in room-size sculptures and environments such as Kitchen (1991-1996) and Back Yard (1996-1999), both featured in her first exhibition in Norway. These dazzling large-scale installations are made up of thousands of glass beads, signaling a transformation of mundane reality to scenes of beauty and wonder. The tension created between seductive surfaces, often challenging subject matter, and the artist’s labor-intensive processes invites viewers to experience the work at both the level of visual wonder and critical analysis.
