Elizabeth Degenszejn

(this page was last updated in June 2021)

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1962.
Lives and works in London, UK.

PIPA 2021 nominee.

Elizabeth’s aspirations were defined by the contours of her parents’ expectations. Expressions of personal identity were boxed in. The conflict between confinement and liberation shaped her life. Her work draws upon this conflict to transform rigid properties into curvilinear possibilities creating fluid abstract sculptures. Her work evokes a balance between control and freedom. ‘Squares’ was shortlisted for ‘Fresh’ and exhibited in the British Ceramics Biennial, in 2019. Elizabeth is currently enrolled in the Ceramics & Glass master’s degree at the Royal College of Art in London.
