Leila Ziu is a British-Libyan-Spanish artist and filmmaker.

My work is a discovery through participation and play. A practice based around the liminal space that invites us to surrender, that shakes us out of our habitual life; a space to release control, release judgement and dissolve the self. With one foot rooted on solid ground, the other in the air; the logical and illogical in partnership, in an attempt to escape the de-humanising forces of post-modern society.
