Ms Lisa Jane Crowley

Biography

Lisa Crowley works in photography and moving image. Her practice draws on diverse lineages of feminist practice. These different strands of thought, spanning the scientific, the mystic and the creative, share an understanding of the natural world through embodied and speculative orientations.

Working with the traces of these practices, and, by embedding them in the immanent and granular materiality of the analogue - Crowley proposes different a logic for being. Her works reveal various forms of feminist ‘doing’; the visual signs of which, are dispersed amongst imagery of the animal and the mineral at work. In pairing the traces of the labour of embodied knowledge-making with the materiality of the world-in-process, Crowley’s work proposes a different kind of intelligence – one that speaks to affective and distributive forms of being.

She has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
