Elizabeth Hoak-Doering (b.1966, Philadelphia) lives and works in Nicosia since 2006. She is an interdisciplinary artist and writer, exhibiting kinetic installation, experimental drawing, printmaking and durational media. Her work addresses questions of individuality, agency and freedom, as found in, and expressed through material culture and archaeology – questions that are approached through a multidisciplinary, experience-based research practice (visual, historical and other). She is a published author and her work is part of international public and private collections. She has been based in Nicosia, Cyprus, since 2006. Hoak-Doering represented Cyprus at the 54th Venice Biennale of Art together with artist Marianna Christofides.
