Elo Liiv (Pärnu Catchment, Estonia)


Elo Liiv is a sculptor and installation artist who lives and works in Estonia. Liiv’s creations are characterized by versatility, installation and experimentalism and she has contributed many public works and monuments in Estonia, as well as participating in solo and group exhibitions. The artist is proficient in classical sculpture but also experiments with modern developments including video, mapping, light and kinetics. Liiv’s works reflect worldview and social themes, including protection of the environment and traditional folk culture in Estonia. For the WaterLANDS Residency, Liiv will work closely with the project team and the local communities to create an “ecological sign language” that draws on the region’s history and connects people with the landscape and biodiversity. She will undertake documentation and filming of the process and work with local groups to create final artwork.
