Erica Scourti is an artist/ film-maker working mainly with digital media whose videos have been screened internationally in galleries, exhbitions and festivals such as Museo Reine Sofia, at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Recontres Internationales, Jeu de Palme, Video Salon Art Prize, Bureau Gallery.
Her work is represented by murmurart online gallery,

Her work in video explores the political, material and semantic dimensions of language- both verbal/ written, and the shared codes of mass culture– and its role as the mediating liminal space between individual and collective. Text and language within the moving image is key to her practice: as text on screen, as a structuring principle behind the work and for its ability to create meaning through interactions between audio, spoken word, text and image .

Her work takes a critical, but playful, stance towards living in a neo-liberal capitalist society, often examining the interaction between consumerism, self-actualisation and belief within it. Using found text from everyday sources- from book titles to corporate slogans to personal diaries- her work humorously engages with the idea of a socially constructed self.
