Combining classical techniques such as stone carving, casting, and draping with digital fabrication, digital imaging, and synthetic materials, Lilia's works offer multiple transformative dimensions. They suggest the body's evolution through technological interventions, both physical and virtual, with forms and textures that allude to the human condition while simultaneously challenging its conventional understanding.
By merging the physical and the digital, the real and the imagined, she aims to initiate a dialogue that transcends the constraints of biology and ideology, perceiving them not as limitations but as catalysts for creative reinvention. Lilia perspective considers the body not as a sum of its boundaries but as an unrestrained, multifaceted entity that freely embodies its potential futures.
