Lili Dujourie

Lili Dujourie's work carries a sense of melancholy. It communicated feelings of loss and longing through an aesthetic that springs from the Flemish tradition of Rubens and Vermeer. The work encouraged the viewer's introspection by the use of closed interiors, fractured pictorial spaces and titles which often emphasised the sense of something 'held back.'
The artistic production of Lili Dujourie is to be considered as a dialogue with the loss from which life just happens to draw its force and dynamics. The videos by Lili Dujourie constitute an important link in a great artistic story in which the force of silence and subtle gesture imply a refusal to represent the world as time would have it.
