Lizz Brady (born September 30, 1988) is visual artist and curator based in Manchester, England.
Lizz Brady has exhibited in the UK and internationally, and much of her work explores issues surrounding mental health, perception, and fractured narratives. In her visual art, Lizz Brady often uses drawing, installation, journaling or diary writing, and focuses on her personal experiences with borderline personality disorder. In Dennis Cooper’s the Weaklings, Brady’s installations were characterized as: “a warren of interconnecting passageways, uneven flooring, and doors leading into themselves, whilst filming each viewer as they attempted to progress through the tangle of structures.” Through these approaches Brady attempts to draw parallels between her own experiences and those of the viewers as they become immersed in the installation.
In the journal The Lancet, she recalled of her process:
“I began to research artists who used their experiences with mental health within their work, and became inspired with what they had accomplished.”
More recently, Lizz Brady’s project Broken Grey Wires examines the relationship between art and mental health by developing a dialogue with leading contemporary artists. Broken Grey Wires includes work by contemporary artists such as David Shrigley, Stuart Semple, Bobby Baker, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Ryan Trecartin, Jeremy Deller, and David Sherry. Through personal experience the project aims “to tackle the relationship between mental health issues and their role and use in contemporary art practice.”
