Elizabeth Wright was born in London and studied at Birmingham Polytechnic and the Royal College of Art in London. Wright creates installations comprised of everyday objects that are so familiar they usually go unnoticed. By playing with scale and distorting these objects, Wright makes the familiar unsettling, encouraging the viewer to examine further. Much of her work is underpinned by subtle social critiques, and she often works with objects that are, or are related to, modes of transport including bikes and cars. Wright has exhibited in London galleries including Karsten Schubert and Delfina, and was part of an exhibition of young British artists titled 'General Release' at the Venice Biennale in 1995.
