Venezuelan artist Elizabeth Cemborain, (Caracas, 1959) majored in architecture at “La Universidad Central de Venezuela”, then went on for a second bachelor’s degree in Pure Art, with a minor in Drawing and Painting, at la “Escuela de Artes Visuales Cristóbal Rojas” in Caracas. Being one of the main exponents of glitch art in Venezuela, Cemborain uses electronic images as a language in order to reflect a wide variety of movement. Over the years, she has dedicated herself to generating a body of work in which a triple articulation of physical displacement through space / landscape typically occurs, the pictorial dislocation generated by electronic error and displacement of the senses. Her works usually consist of videos or digital photographs of urban landscapes, which are then processed on her computer and / or cell phone in order to push the image to the limit of its symbolic potential. The objective is to reach the point where the "real" image has been expelled from the observer’s perception; thus, landscapes transform into broken lines, disintegrate into pixels or stripes of color and dissolve within themselves.
