Elena Brake (b. 1993) is an emerging artist based in Plymouth, UK. Through performance, installation and video she reimagines and enchants our everyday experiences.

Brake’s work plays on the edge of boredom and anticipation through the exaggeration or repetition of mundane details. It captures the attention of the audience and directs it at overlooked moments of life, stirring complicated and unexpected emotional responses.

Her practice captivates through its blunt simplicity and accessibility. The playful moments of pause offered by her work allows the viewer a chance to savour small moments of enlightenment in the ordinary, revealing the magic of domestic and public experience.
