Léa Dalissier works primarily in screen print, creating multi-layered portraits that look at technological human histories and possible futures to address the present and shift modes of thinking as a way of tethering the speculation to the present time.
Her work often appropriates elements of familiar Sci-Fi, pop culture and relates to the New Weird movement with its surreal World-building content, utopian timelines and dreamlike poetic aesthetics.
Often research-based, Léa’s practice aligns with notions revolving around ecological awareness and socio-political activism, one that she proposes as ‘kind activism’ – an ideology that aims to inform and allow for contemplation – a chance to slow down in an anxious and fast-paced world.
Based around an urgent sense of ecological awareness, her pieces look at humanity’s loss of intuition and the consequences of the technological advances and biological discoveries.
