Liberté Grace is a multiple award-winning artist and auteur filmmaker born in Australia, working in the mediums of video, installation and photography. Her works have been screened and exhibited within cultural institutions in Australia, France and Italy, including; Cannes Film Festival, Art Basel, Art Gallery of NSW, Times Square (NY), and Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery.
Grace's art practice centralises on the premise of identity as creation, through transformation via new consciousness perspectives. She believes that all realities are the outer fantasy of the inner world and the consciousness of each individual. Her works challenge belief systems by reconstructing them into fantasy worlds, distilling the wisdom beyond repetitive historical patterns of behaviour and translating them into surrealist constructs.
Grace has received multiple awards in Australia and the US since age 21; including the Sutton Commercial Galleries Award, the Chroma Australia Award (Gallery NSW), the Lloyd Reeds Youth Memorial Art Award Commendation, Brett Ratner Scholarship (NY) for film direction, as well as winning the top graduate prize at V.C.A, The Wallara Traveling Scholarship, and the Churchie National Emerging Art Prize. In 2014, Grace was shortlisted as part of the top 25 video artists worldwide by the international panel of the inaugural Arte Laguna Art Prize, held at the Arsenale in Venice, Italy. Recently, she was a selected finalist in the RAW Art Prize and Fisher's Ghost Art Prize.
Grace was also the Editor of I AM FILM - a blog featuring interviews with the Masters of Film, where she interviewed cinematic personas such as; Koreeda Hirokazu, Ruben Östlund, Jackie Chan, Justin Chon, Kimberly Peirce, amongst many others.
