Erica Sklenars

"Erica Sklenars is a New Zealand artist who works predominantly in the mediums of performance and video, creating both solo performative video art, and collaborative audio-visual performance installation. In her solo work, the artist turn the camera on herself, exploring the dynamic of humour in contemporary feminisms, investigating social conventions, pop culture, and the absurdity of human existence.
Many of these themes also overlap into her collaborative work as Lady Lazer Light, where she works with sound artists and musicians to create performance environments and experiences. These involve projection mapping of original or found and re-contextualised video content, lighting, set and costume design."
