SEAGER is excited to present the first comprehensive exhibition of Liz Calvi’s portfolio for Photo London Digital 2020. 

Liz Calvi photographs herself, friends, and family to create intimate tableaux exploring gender, identity and sexuality. Each work is titled with the initial of a name, followed by Roman numerals that mark the count of their encounter with the photographer. Lifting these fragile moments into bold light through cinematic scenes, Calvi explores how we create, see and share ourselves with others. In doing so, she indulges in the often contested freedom of displaying one’s own body online and provokes experimentation with the heightened presence of a digital self. Pulling from imagery in our collective consciousness — specifically iconography from Hollywood & mass media, which influence identity construction — Calvi reenacts cinematic scenes in her personal surroundings as a form of reflection. The autobiographical and the staged, the ideal and the everyday start blending into each other. The most intimate breaks into the screen and reclaims the space of ‘content creation’ for the self, the friend, the lover and the sister — who can now carefully assemble their own fantasies rich with emotion and expression.  


Liz Calvi (b. 1990, USA) works across photography, video, and installation to address critical concerns regarding sexuality, identity, and digital media. She is a graduate of the MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths University. Recent exhibitions include All About the Light (Griffin Museum of Photography, US, 2020), Rituals of Resistance (The Urban Collective, US, 2020), and Shadow Screens (SEAGER, UK, 2019). Her work has also been featured in numerous publications including Der Greif (DE), Aint-Bad (US), and Fader (US), as well as in limited-edition books including 'Me, Myself and AI', 'Vuu Super Special Vol. 2' and 'The Blue Library Vol 2', which is in the permanent collection of Antenna in New Orleans. In addition to Antenna, Calvi’s works are in several private and public collections including The Girls Club in Fort Lauderdale among others.
