Dilohana Lekamge is a Wellington-based visual artist whose practice consists of live-performance and performance-based video works - often including elements of bodily manipulation and endurance. She explores her heritage and social position as a young woman of Sri Lankan descent. Throughout her practice she consistently responds to her Western education and placement in Euro-centric New Zealand.
From 2017-19 she was a facilitator of the Wellington artist-run initiative MEANWHILE. During this period she published a number of critical texts for galleries, physical publications and online platforms.
