I am an interdisciplinary artist using humor and performative strategies to investigate issues of security, displacement and identity in an increasingly globalized world. A recent MFA graduate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University, I employ humor and sarcasm to question existing notions of identity formation. By recontextualizing traditional gestures and objects that culturally define us, I aim to deconstruct social norms, consumer culture and notions of place. Along with Andrew Y. Ames, I am a founding member of the WRMC Collaborative whose aim is to create unexpectied, alternative ways of experiencing the everyday that invite critical reflacetion on notions of consumerism, technology and globalization. Mellor was recently featured in the Boston Globe as one of the six graduate students to watch. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has most recently been included in the New England Photography Biennial at the Danforth Museum of Art and at AXIOM Gallery for New and Experimental Media.
