In Lilly McElroy’s words: “The artistic projects I pursue are a reflection of my complex relationship with the American West and explore what it means to be an American in a time of diminished expectations. I perform for the camera, enacting gestures that reflect a sense of quixotic hopefulness as well as a desire for control over subjects as ungovernable as nature. My performances take a variety of forms and allow me to engage with others or insert myself into the landscape. It is though these projects that I attempt to develop authentic ties to my own experiences, to give the cliche new and personal meaning.”
