About me

Introduction CamLab is the collaborative practice of Anna Mayer and Jemima Wyman, which began at the California Institute of the Arts, Valencia, CA in 2005. Mayer and Wyman are united by a common interest in phenomena such as feminism, embodied knowledge, and the destabilization of a singular subjectivity. CamLab believes that a contemporary politics of pleasure must acknowledge the contiguity of language and body in facilitating a spectrum of experience that includes alterity, intimacy, and humor. This philosophy materializes in CamLab's process, in particular the duo's social practice work and relational object-making. Solo shows include Sea and Space Exploration, Los Angeles (2008); 40000, Chicago (2007); and Dan Graham/Leslie Dick, Los Angeles (2009). In 2012 CamLab staged three event-based works at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Their work has been included in group exhibitions at museums and galleries that include Torrance Museum of Art, Los Angeles (2012), Fellows of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2009). CamLab has performed in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum (2012), The Lounge at REDCAT (2008). In Fall 2015, CamLab was Occidental College's Wanlass Artist-in-Residence.
