It is not surprising to learn that the Los Angeles-based artist Liz Glynn studied environmental studies at Harvard before pursuing a master’s degree at the California Institute of the Arts. Indeed, her multidisciplinary sculptures, installations and performances—which often employ found items and materials—seem to suggest the redemptive power of salvage, and are marked by an almost archeological interest in objects and stories from the past.
Earlier this month, in Paris’ art fair FIAC, Glynn installed three bronze figures from her Auguste Rodin-inspired “Myth of Singularity” series in the courtyard garden of the Petit Palais. The presentation acted as a fitting overture to a solo exhibition of her works that opened on Saturday at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Amid her hectic schedule, the artist took a moment to answer artnet News’s questions.
