Zizi Rincolisky primarily writes texts about her experiences in different continents, countries and cultures. But writing alone is not enough for her. She searches for a visual image that approaches her idea about how these words containing meaning can be transformed into the thing, the object of art. The latter could be an installation, a painting, a photograph or text combined with drawings. But even this is not enough, Zizi wants encore, which she transforms into en corps in her performances and her films by using her body as a third element in the composition of text – object and body. Her work is inspired by the theory and practice of the philosopher and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, who differs from the other analysts by his new definition of ‘feminine enjoyment’, beyond Freud for whom ‘anatomy is destiny.’

On the level of ’being’, a woman looks for ‘more’ (encore), beyond the limit of the phallus, what Lacan calls ‘surplus jouissance.’ This encore or surplus jouissance passes through each of the artist work like a leitmotiv.
