Innovation Project (Face Value)
20 March – 20 April 2012

Innovation Project (Face Value) is an investigative exercise that stems from the opposition of two bank notes – the Zimbabwean One Hundred Trillion Dollar note and the Indian zero rupee note.

Through a range of scenarios, the artist aims to open up dialogue that acts as an alternative discussion surrounding matters of the economy. The notion of face value is explored through a series of found objects, collages, digital imagery, and sculptures.

Lizzy’s practice responds to the social and political conditions of her time. Her work reflects on the social structures we accept and live by as best practice in the Australia and the West.

Lizzy is a current Masters of Fine Art candidate at RMIT University.
