Eva LisPersonal Statement. Made in China, research based project, available as limited publication and in form of presentation, 2010
In her latest project Made in China Lis looked at the mechanisms of globalization and free market. The artist posted an ad online offering $10 for one week work to write her personal statement. She received 34939 replies, mostly from developing countries, bidding for the job.
She selected four workers each one from Pakistan, India, Philippines and Bangladesh and submitted their work as part of her graduation piece.
Made in China exposed a system of global market without global society. Despite the fact that the workers supply goods for the western market they never will became a part of western society and will not consume the products of their labour.

Parade of the Denizens, sculpture, performance, 2007
In 2007 Eva Lis toured around the edges of the M25 in a horse-drawn gallery/sculpture.
The gloss black surfaces of box reflected the passing English landscapes in a dark and distorted way.
Inside the box the mischievous drawings of collaborating artist Ed Pien called out fear and fascination.
The project awoke some issues of migration, dislocation and how an individual becomes the product of cultural crossbreeding through the journeys into multiculturalism.
