Lisa Torell has for more than a decade focused her artistic practice on public and semi-public spaces using a site-specific approach to enter into a close dialogue with chosen places and situations. Through her presence, and in the presence of invited people or random passers-by, she creates contexts that expose and twist the structures and purposes of the locality. For Lisa Torell, every public space is specific and shaped by cultural and social, aesthetic and political circumstances.
