Drama / Art Bio

Multi media artist Emily Clemett, (Show Pony) creates art and performance through transformative or interactive costumes, objects, film and music. Taking inspiration from Tiki Modernism and New Zealand culture, her artistic work is likened to childhood remembrance using bold colours and images. Influenced by Noel Fielding, Judith Supine, Damien Hirst and Gilbert & George, her work is also a practice of sourcing and collecting a wide range of discarded and recycled materials to be repurposed.  Recent works include Toi Taniwha Arts Project, Shabby Salon and Bicycle Festival of Lights and Motion.  The work of Clemett’s interactive Shabby Salon, transforms hairstyles into “wonderlands of colour and mayhem in an exuberant performance of pandemonium”  Clemett has exhibited work throughout the UK and Europe as well as NZ and also works as a musician and educator.
