Liz Wilson’s practice explores the stretch of time between the industrial and post-industrial; In particular the beginning of automation and how this is altering our relationships with technology. Using site visits as a catalyst to research, write and produce works, she explores the human-machine relationship of both ‘conductor’ and ‘orchestra’ and how these performative roles manifest themselves within both our natural and fabricated environments. 


Since graduating with a masters in Fine Art from the Royal College of Art she has exhibited and screened works within the UK and internationally within various Art Institutions including Taoxichuan Museum of Art, China; OGA, Rome; Parc de la Villette, Paris; FACT, Liverpool; Hockney Gallery, London. 


In 2019 she was awarded the first digital art commission for ‘Art in Manufacturing’, the headline-commissioning programme for the National Festival of Making (Arts Council England & Deco Publique). In 2020 she undertook a seven-month residency at Coachworks, Ashford (co-commissioned by Turner Works & Ashford Borough Council) where she collaborated with Hitachi Rail Ltd to produce a body of work which resulted in a multichannel video installation titled ‘The Orchestrated Unconscious’. This led to further Arts Council funding to work with Liverpool based manufacturer CNC Robotics for two years and culminated in a large-scale installation showcased at the National Festival of Making in 2022 titled ‘Within the Wake’. This was featured in Aesthetica’s ‘Future Now’ anthology, a publication taking temperature of global contemporary art practice. She recently undertook a major commission featured in the Turner Prize wraparound programme, resulting in an immersive installation titled ‘Of Confluence’. This was delivered in partnership with Blackshed Gallery, De La Warr Pavillion, Eastbourne Alive and Rother District Council. Previously her work has been shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries, the Stanley Picker Tutorship, in addition to being selected as ‘One to Watch’ by editor in chief for ‘After Nyne’ magazine.
