Mayah Eden Lasky, also known as ‘Melasko’, is a multidisciplinary artist based in Naarm. Primarily exhibiting photography, film, and video installation, her work deconstructs stereotypes and misconceptions by employing a socially-engaged documentary practice. Recently, she has delved into topics such as body image, transnational identity, and diaspora. Her current project is focused on shining a spotlight on the experience of people with ADHD. Her practice develops by inviting her community to be part of a greater conversation to bring awareness and compassion by sharing their personal experiences. She creates work that can comfortably sit either in the gallery space or the cinema.
