“These rites are not for you to hear, but they are worth knowing”- Dionysus, The Bacchae, Euripides

Anya Gleizer’s practice led at an interface between art and biology, explores the relationship between human culture and the natural world. However, at the heart of this practice, the boundary that allows the binary to persist blurs and starts to slip. Anya explores themes of interior and exterior wilderness through performance and intermedia-installation. Many of her pieces involve the participation of multiple performers and audience members, calling for a full involvement with the work. Anya is a member of the artist collective La Malle des Indes and often collaborates with its other members to incorporate dance and music into her pieces.

Anya Gleizer graduated from Edinburgh College of Art
