Eliza-Jane Gilchrist is a visual and performance artist. She has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Sculpture), and immigrated to Australia in 2009. In Eliza-Jane's sculpture practice her materials are often the discarded – clothes, found objects, and cardboard. Ugly, worthless things, which she rehabilitates using hand-made alterations, embroidery or drawing. She makes ugly things beautiful in an attempt to challenge perceptions of insignificance and value. She is Co-Director of Such As They Are, an installation/puppet company who construct and perform shows in purpose-built spaces.
