Elizabeth Black is an international artist with a passion for generating dialogue around disquieting issues. Her research concerns such topics as social politics, dysfunctional humour, site, and body. Black often works through collaborative and coercive relations within live art, discursive events, and art happenings. Her practice covers a range of media between performance, text, sculpture, and photography.
