Driven by a curiosity around interspecies entanglements, metamorphic states and queer ecology, Ella Yolande’s practice explores the fluidity and resilience of non-human organisms. She works across video, 3D animation, sculpture, textiles and text to create surreal biomes that reference microscopic life forms, sci-fi and botanical architecture. Through considering the history and medicinal properties of plants as well as the need for mutual flourishing and mutable, multi-species bodies, she explores our interwoven existence with our surroundings through playful thinking on speculative ecologies.
Ella studied art in Devon where she grew up, before completing a BA(Hons) in Intermedia at Edinburgh College of Art, 2019. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Melkweg Expo Amsterdam, Staffordshire St. Gallery London, Artcore Gallery in Derby and screened at Flat Earth Film Festival 2022 Iceland, Fiber Festival 2021 and EMBASSY gallery Biscuit Tin Film Festival 2021. Recently she was a participant of LungA School Art Programme in Iceland and CCA Derry~Londonderry’s digital artist in residence.
