  • Biography

    liactuallee (b. 1995) is a queer transient being with a diverse cultural background, exploring fluidity of the world through mixed media drawings and fibre art. li’s work deals with interconnections of contemporary discourses of gender, race and cultural displacement; and more pressingly ecology, and the ongoing climate crisis. liactuallee graduated from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honors in 2016, and received a postgraduate diploma in Aesthetics, Criticism and Theory from Jnanapravaha, Mumbai.

    li explored traditional and feminist textile art as a child in Poland, and also learnt crochet, nee­dle-point, and embroidery. The diverse tech­niques encouraged more diverse modes of expression and the repetition in the process becomes a meditative journey with a calming essence. There is a certain level of fluidity to the li’s structure, which are vibrant metaphors for a hopeful future.
