Lenka Clayton is a conceptual artist and educator whose interdisciplinary work considers, exaggerates, and alters the accepted rules of everyday life, extending the familiar into the realms of the poetic and absurd.
Clayton is the founder of An Artist Residency in Motherhood, a self-directed, open-source artist residency to empower and inspire artists who are also mothers.
For one artwork, Clayton hand-numbered 7,000 stones.Clayton’s work spans many mediums including film, performance, fiber, drawing, and writing.
I aimed to embrace the fragmented mental focus, exhaustion, nap-length studio time and countless distractions of parenthood as well as the absurd poetry of time spent with young children as my working materials and situation, rather than obstacles to be overcome.Lenka Clayton
