Liza's show is a result of a 2014 fiscal year MN State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant. This is Liza's second showing in the Twin Cities.
Liza will also be showcasing a new multidisciplinary project called, "What if I Told You a Story in a Language I Can Hear"
Liza says this about the project;
"I grew up losing my hearing. It was a long, slow progression into deafness that started when I was six years old. I find that my grasp of language and communication is continually shifting, and often it is hard for me to stay afloat in the world that we call language.
The still is from a video of myself reciting something that I wrote. First I recite my writing in my "normal" voice. Second I recite only the parts of each word that I am able to hear.
For me both versions of this poem's recital sound the same."
Liza sylvesre is a fiscal year 2014 recipient of an artist initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
