I'm A Liminal Gangter, you know what I mean,
Keeping it real on the fictional scene'
Bella Lordwarf, 2015
The desire to playfully rub the fantastical up against the everyday drives my practice. Through appropriating
visual tropes, throwaway narratives and contemporary cultural references and applying a surreal filter to them
I create recognisable, but imagined worlds. In order to justify the existence of these fictional spaces myself
and my alter-ego, Bella Lordwarf create paintings as artefacts, videos as propaganda and performances as
happenings. Throughout the carnivalesque prevails.
