Mixed media artist and scholar 11i (Elfi) assembles materials and techniques to explore the heartbreak that’s always there. With layers of lino print, textiles, paper, paint, and animation, they work through the layers of everyday heartbreaks; the despair of not knowing yourself, the melancholy of disconnection, the grief of not belonging. Whether it comes to intense emotions, societal expectations, habits, language, or identity, 11i reimagines the mundane through a colorful, nostalgic, critical, joyful lens to remind themselves and you of the strength in softness and the boundless potential for growth and creativity amidst our heartache.
