Elizabeth Withstandley

Getaway is a 10-channel video installation that uses the backdrop of a tragic event at the Everglades in the mid-1990s to explore a misinterpreted land. Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Elizabeth Withstandley interrogates contemporary culture through loose narrative structures. These multi-channel compositions question individuality, morality and the purpose of life. The artist often begins with a portrait of a person and expands outwards, encompassing reflections on their wider community and local culture. Music is often a central thematic backbone to Withstandley’s projects, leaving viewers to wonder about their place in life.
