The work of Liliana Moro (born 1961 in Milan, where she lives and works) formulates itself metaphorically. She reaches for alternative worlds, momentary resolves - our childhood -, and finds a way of expression through their physical and material qualities. Through clearly visible attributes, yet less logical and unequivocal most often attached to a process of association, her installations speak to the spectator and, paradoxically, in a rather direct manner. The position of the spectator constantly teeters from a witness to voyeur, and then as a participant and vice-versa. The mechanisms of perception and of reception are inherent of her work. The artist seems equally fascinated by the phenomena of power. Not so much through its historical and political implications but rather by that of its logic, dynamic and reversible, as well as the fragile aspect that power conceals.
