Ella Fitzgerald

Interdisciplinary artist

"Ella Fitzgerald is a multimedia artist from Teesside, currently living in London, who's work concerns the role of Northern working class dysfunctional family dynamics in relation to their upbringing in the digital age. Criticising, exploring but yet appreciating the ideals and struggles working class youth are brought up in vs their role in the modern art world. Their work has recently became more focused on themes of identity politics portrayed through the medium of costume, makeup photography, performance, video, AR and digital. Their work concerns itself with themes of gender identity by questioning the binary, as well as themes of class inequality and queerness through exploring speculative futures of societies structures through a queer working class lens.
