Elena received her MFA form Otis College of Art and Design and her BA from Drama Center London in theater. She lives and works in Los Angeles. Her work addresses the construction of subject positions. She explores that concept through musical compositions put to representations of characters she performs on film then presents as video installations.

The characters are unconvincing at times and seem to fade into one another. This imperfect attempt at building a performance also takes place in the representation of the set and the medium. The scenes are framed and lit in such a way to suggest “stage” and “performance” yet the pictorial space and story are broken into large and fragmented multi-projection installations.

Her current series “Conditions for Love” is based partly on the Freudian essays under the title “Contributions to the Psychology of Love” and an unpublished manuscript from 1971 by Edgar Stephens titled “The Nemesis Influence”. This series explores the conditions where the “act” of love can be disseminated morally, politically and culturally. The interchangeability of such words as “know”, “desire” and “possess” are motifs in this series.

Destabilizing subject positions is increasingly a motivation and a focal point in my work. I explore that concept through musical compositions put to representations of characters I perform on film then present as video installations.
