Lisa Schamlé (1989) is an Amsterdam-based visual artist, theatre maker/performer and is a former member of the performance collective La Isla Bonita. In 2015 she graduated at the Institute of Performative Arts in Maastricht with a photo series of self portraits.
Since then, Lisa combines humor with aesthetics in her work, which is often theatrical by nature. She approaches her work like an obsessive collector, with an urge to draw parallels between seemingly unrelated things. By putting them in a series, Lisa gives new meaning to her subjects and questions its given context.
Playing with clichés, she redefines out-of-date concepts and gender confirming roles. By sharing this, she tries to provide a more nuanced depiction others can identify with; for connection and comfort.
