Brief
‘An installation of new mixed media works, reworks & a live work by LG, influenced by distractions, coloured lights, and “shiny, pretty things” Conflating dichotomies of escapism, waste, hope, resilience, gratitude, contradictions and the aspirational’ – LG

Biography
Leif Gifford (LG) is an Australian/English artist based in Brisbane with a dynamic and varied practice including DIY, interventionist, and guerrilla actions ranging from drawings, paintings, video, and film, to large immersive installations and performances. Her practice engages with recurring themes and influences like hyper reality, the spectacle, the human condition, science-fiction, psychogeography, magical realism, wonder, awe, dichotomies, privilege, narcissism, contradiction, chiaroscuro, and entropy.

Gifford is currently involved in various music and art projects including LG, Slupr, Privileged White Girls and Reptile, and previously Shooga and Insipid Bitch. Gifford is also a co-conspirator of the DIY ARI A Natural Low. Her work spans two decades across several countries including the UK, Japan, Belgium, and Brisbane. Leif holds a 1st class honours degree in Fine Art and MA VA from NTU School of Art & Design, Nottingham, UK.
