STATEMENT

Liz Ndoye (formerly Elizabeth Weiner Cohen) is a mixed media artist who enjoys using found and recycled materials to create cross-cultural artifacts like her dolls. Made from fabrics and bits and pieces of stuff that she has collected during her travels all over the world, they simulate objects from traditional cultures.

In fact she is creating a new culture based on her doll creatures. The doll culture has its own universals including: a written alphabet and language, a governmental system, a religion and spiritual life, a complex family structure, and an active play and entertainment sector. For shows in the future, Ndoye will be fabricating a monetary component, the aesthetics and music of her dolls, etc.
