Lili White (USA)

Lili White

Using stylized gestures as a mode of ritualistic format and screen performance, Lili White’s ( ) modus operandi is often an exploration on the subject of relationships of power and repression; sometimes drawing from ancient stories re-contextualized into meditations on the world in which we live and the ramifications of inaction and stagnation.
Influenced by art history; informed by Eastern philosophy and psychological theory, her content highlights nature, myth, dreams, archetypal imagery and language.
Atmospheric collage movies connect news-media issues to scientific facts, parallel personal to mythic stories, film and art histories, and other art forms (literature, poetry) to present a holistic view of the chosen theme.
Lili White has exhibited her videos in shows in the United States, Germany, England, Ireland and China. Her work has been called “a magical act” and is influenced by her painting studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
