Elizabeth Tomos

"Elizabeth Tomos is a multidisciplinary artist working across the mediums of performance, installation and printmaking. Her practice explores the body as a means of image production and 'proprioception' (our sense of being in a body and orientated in space). Somatic methodology and the philosophies and practices of embodiment give credence to the body's capacity to both learn and to create knowledge outside of and in critique of systems of power: the body is both tool, agent and object. Therefore, most of the work aims to make sense of, document or record perceptual and embodied experiences. For example, her recent hand-built screen-printing machine, is designed to record minute shifts in bodily pressure. The large scale of the work deliberately exacerbates, makes strenuous and draws attention to the movements of the printmaker. This performance of a printmaking process is one of endurance, where over the day(s) the body becomes increasingly unable to perform the task of printing. The resulting print becomes a record of the tension in the body, the movements undertaken and the shifting pressure."
