Erica Scourti was born in Athens, Greece and now lives in London. Her work draws on personal experience to explore life, labour, gender and love in a fully mediated world. She has studied Chemistry at UCL, Fine Art at Middlesex University and in 2013 she completed a MRes degree in Moving Image Art at Central Saint Martin’s. She has presented performances and talks at Whitechapel Gallery, South London Gallery, Block Universe Festival, IMPAKT Festival 2016, Utrecht, Transmediale, Dutch Art Institute, ICA, Southbank Centre, the Royal College of Art, Goldsmiths College, Autoitalia and Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam. In her recent work she utilises social-media networks as raw material, probing and testing their data-processing alogorithms to create self-portraits for a hashtagged age. In Sound Acts she presented a performance that combines the idea of sound, the material body and networked identities, using amongst others Google speech translate software.
