Akira and Nathan Lasker are twins who form a loose artist collaborative. They employ video performances to explore how everyday rituals and the gestures associated with them can
become absurd theatres. In their mutual mimicries, everyday actions become intense
affective experiences of abjectness and comical humour that reflect on how we constantly
perform through our daily lives.
Akira and Nathan Lasker are graduating from the Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney College
of the Arts. They have exhibited their works in Artist Run Initiatives in Sydney and
Melbourne and will be presenting work at Artereal Gallery for Dlux Media Art’s November
screening program IS THIS ART? Akira and Nathan Lasker are also selected artists for SafARI 2016, curated by Sophie Kitson and Louise Dibbens.
