Lera Kelemen (b. 1994) is a multimedia artist currently working in London, UK. Her practice incorporates themes about post-humanism, hybridity, feminism & technology. Her artistic practice focuses on exploring the manifestation of bodies and space through the integration of partial technologies, and devising conceptually immersive environments. In her works, surfaces and textures serve as dynamic mediums for identity and embodiment.

She holds an MA in Information Experience Design from the Royal College of Art, where she graduated with Distinction and was shortlisted for the Lumen Prize for her video work Texture is Identity. She completed her Fine Arts degree in 2018, and received the Art Encounters Award for her graduation project.

Selected residencies and exhibitions include: Green Skin / Crevice solo show at Borderline Art Space (RO, 2021), I feel something, don’t know what group show at Zacheta Gallery (PL, 2021), Green Skin / Affective Interstice at Art Encounters (RO, 2021), Kunsthalle Bega residency (RO, 2019), Niki Artist-Run residency (DE, 2020), TM2023 commission (RO, 2020), Staycation group show at Catinca Tăbăcaru Gallery (RO, 2022), If Anything Else Survives at Potential Project (GR, 2021), Royal College of Art grad show (UK, 2022).
