Lisa Birke

Lisa Birke is a multi-disciplinary artist who situates between the tradition of painting, digital video and performance art. Her interest lies in the follies of the human condition; specifically how the self navigates both natural and virtual realities. She asks whether the female can feel at home in nature, myth and on screen, realms where she is so often laid to rest.
Lisa Birke is a recent graduate of the MFA program at the University of Waterloo (2013) where she held the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Master’s Scholarship and the University of Waterloo President’s Graduate Scholarship. She was also awarded an Outstanding Achievement in Graduate Studies distinction. She has had solo exhibitions and screenings across Canada and internationally.
