about

Liz Hernández (b. 1993) is an artist from Mexico City who works primarily with topics related to her identity. In 2011 she relocated to the Bay Area to study product design only to find out that her true interest lies on the narratives we place on objects of our everyday.
She is forever concerned with the distance immigration takes us from where we were born, but also from the person we were living there.

Liz currently lives and works in Oakland, CA.
