Liisa Roberts - Camden Art Centre

Liisa Roberts

Exploring the tension between film and sculpture by exploiting formal elements in both media, Finnish-American artist Liisa Roberts creates site-specific installations concerned with space and time. During her residency, she researched ideas for a new project following ‘VYBORG: a town library in Viipuri’ from 2000. Roberts’ project in the Russian city of Vyborg employed a range of disciplines from architecture to education. It engaged with the complex history and identity of the city which was founded under Swedish rule and alternated between Finnish and Russian control.
