Eliza Ballesteros (*1988) lives and works in Düsseldorf and Cologne. She graduated at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in 2019 as a master student of Prof. Rita McBride. In 2021 she received the Förderpreis YOUNG ARTIST PUBLISH from the Stiftung Kunst und Kultur Bonn and Wienand Verlag Köln and had her first solo exhibition with fiebach, minninger. Ballesteros works have been shown among others at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf 2021), Kunst im Tunnel KIT (Düsseldorf 2021), Simultanhalle (Cologne 2021), Kunstsammlung NRW K21 (Düsseldorf 2020) and at Westfälischer Kunstverein (Münster 2022). Ballesteros describes herself as a sculptural conceptual artist, dealing with objects, texts and installation. She recontextualizes and reinterprets cultural meanings of symbols and materials to question structures of power and society through the precise staging of stage-like settings. Her works are ongoing negotiations and explorations of themes such as tradition, power relations, interpretive sovereignties, sinister fetishes and gender norms.
