Elizabeth Briel left the US in 2003 to explore the Asia-Pacific for 3 years before moving to the Mediterranean region, and became fascinated by Asia. She is in the process of immigrating to Hong Kong (year four of seven for Permanent Residency) and eventually Greece. Previous homes have included Australia, Cambodia, Thailand, Italy, France, Mainland China, and Korea.

Elizabeth works as artist-in-residence for an education foundation in Hong Kong, and has a studio in the city’s Creative Arts Centre for public projects. At the heart of her artwork are experiments with multiple layers of meaning in the interactions between material culture, text, language, and cultural collisions.You can find her work here: on Twitter: @ArtMaterialistand Instagram: @ebrielart (personal artwork) and @ebrielstudio (public activities).
