LIZN’BOW – Liz Ferrer and Bow Ty Enterprises Venture Capital

Artist in Residence, 2024

Artist Statement

Our work spans various mediums including digital art, sculpture, music, video, and performance art. Through a queer and comedic lens, our work together has been building a reputation for critiquing American and Latin pop. Most recent projects include feminist reggaeton band Niña and new media collaborative LIZN’BOW. At the heart of our practice lies a feminist reimagining of each element, towards a more inclusive and fantastical worldview. Niña is a feminist reggaeton duo and performative art project featuring Liz Ferrer and Bow Ty. They started this body of work to bring diverse voices to the traditionally male genre of reggaeton. LIZN’BOW is a new media body of work in which they use media technology, digital tools, and community building exercises as vehicles to visualize, play, and explore different social and creative possibilities.

While at Headlands

While at Headlands we will be doing post production work on an experimental mini web series funded by the Knight Foundation, with working title [Cries in Spanish]. We will also be doing some R&D work on our Creative Capital project, Novelas de Niñas, an interactive bilingual soap opera set within a quince where music and storytelling explore the intersections of femme, queer, Latinx identity.
