Riza Manalo's body of work continues to explore questions of memory and identity through the modes of video, site-specific installation and performance. Her work is a research of process and narrative using various digital media to capture the source and use as a point of departure to create different abstract moments and open-ended narratives.

She is interested in the impact of displacement and the arrival into a new place - the feeling of uncertainty combined with unfamiliar images and objects that captures isolation and eventual adaptation. Her work focuses on shifts, transitions and the condition of living between polarities of culture and geography, and the nature of interstitial realities.
