Lia Chaia has been working with different media, moving through photography, video, performance, installation and urban interventions. Her works deal will many issues, one of them concerning the perceptions and experiences of everyday life, like the permanent tension of culture versus nature, reflecting on the manner nature has been appropriated by the standards of urban culture. She is also interested in thinking and understanding how the body reacts to stimuli and disruptions in everyday life. Perceiving and responding to the external stimulation with the body has become vital to her work, and thus why the body is frequently used in many of her pieces.
