Image description: Liliane sits in her studio on a grey armchair with wooden arms and legs. She has long shoulder-length, dark brown hair with pink streaks that frames her face. She wears a black-and-brown, tie-dye T-shirt with the word ‘Legend’ in yellow and all caps printed across the chest. The face of Bob Marley is printed beneath this and is slightly obscured by folds in the fabric. She wears blue jeans and black sandals. Behind her on the studio floor is an assortment of objects including stacks of Olvomaltine containers, a ceramic vase and a large potted dragon tree. Pinned to the studio wall are black-and-white print-outs of vintage Renault 4s and old Olvomaltine advertisements, two faux fur workers gloves with keys attached to the fingers, and other sculptural objects. ­­­
