Elizabeth Milton is a performance and media artist who lives and works on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations in Vancouver, Canada. Her video and photo-based works utilize absurdist character play to explore hyperbolic expressivity, comedic excess and processes of endurance. Milton holds an MFA in Studio Art from the University of British Columbia and a BFA in Visual Art from Simon Fraser University. Her work has been exhibited and performed in venues across Canada and Europe and developed through artist residencies at the Banff Centre (Alberta), Access Gallery (Vancouver), Skaftfell Centre for Visual Art (Seyðisfjörður, Iceland) and De-Construkt Projects, (Brooklyn, New York). She is a faculty member in the Fine Art Department at Langara College where she instructs courses in Media and Performance.


Elizabeth will be presenting a new work, Pink Waves: A Guided Meditation, at DE-CONSTRUKT. Pink Waves, is a performative experience that explores screen space, maximalist femininity and pop culture notions of transcendence. Using camp materiality and absurdist excess, Pink Waves collides visualizations, projections and performance into an ecstatic immersion into the femme sublime.
