ELLY CLARKE is a performer, photographer and researcher interested in the experience and role of the physical object and body in an increasingly digitally-mediated and experienced world. #Sergina is a gender-ambiguous, multi-locationable, drag queen created by Clarke but performed also by others, who sings and performs songs about love, lust and loneliness in a time of digitalism. Worn across a number of different bodies, #Sergina has performed at The Lowry Centre, Salford Quays; Marlborough Theatre, Brighton; G12 Hub and Kulturni Centar GRAD in Belgrade; The Club, Monster Ronson’s Ichiban Karaoke and Silver Future, Berlin; Birmingham Open Media; Secret Project Robot Art Experiment, Brooklyn; the Island Bristol; Home Manchester and the Academy of Fine Arts Munich. Clarke has taught at Transart Institute, Berlin; Srishti College of Art and Design, Bangalore; Margaret Street, Birmingham; Victoria College of the Arts, Melbourne; Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and for a year was Senior Lecturer at Coventry University. Her work has been supported by Arts Council West Midlands, Camden Council and Goldrausch Kunstlerinnen IT in Berlin. Clarke has a first class BA in History of Art from Leeds University (1998) and a MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, London (2003) and is currently researching a practice-led PhD with the working title 'Is My Body Out of Date? The Drag of Physicality in the Digital Age,' funded by CHASE DTP.
