Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen

About Lilibeth

Born: 1970, Manila, Philippines

Based in Copenhagen, Denmark

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussens praxis is based on performance art, also transformed to different materials and medias as video, photography, sculpture and installations.

Cuencas productions involve the body, scripted texts, songs; composed music as well as intricate visual elements as costumes used as set design. She gathers, adapts, and universalizes her narratives in both a critical and humorous approach in regards to issues such as identity, culture, religion, gender and social relations.
