Eliza Mozer is an interdisciplinary artist from Chicago. She graduated from Bard College in May 2017 with a BA in photography and a focus on sculpture. Her most recent and continuously growing body of work investigates the relationship between representation and “real” life, via new and old media, as an autobiographical exploration of what it means to have a body and a self in the context of digitalness.
“Although the Chess Queen is the most powerful piece on the board, she is ultimately submissive and subordinate to the King. With all eyes on her, she gains power via the gaze structure that she controls, perpetuating her subordination. I see this system as parallel to the heteropatriarchal structure that rules contemporary society. I am interested in exploring what it means to exist and to be seen. By subjecting my own body in the work that I make, I hope to prompt viewers to question the power of their gaze.”
