Leeroy New is an artist-designer whose practice overlaps and intersects with different creative industries. Originally trained as a sculptor he has also dabbled significantly in production design, costuming and performance. This inclination to move from one mode of creative production to another has become the spine of his practice driven by concepts of world building and hybrid myth-making.
What resulted were immersive installations that use a variety of found objects directly sourced from the material culture of his current environment. Through his collaborations with local performers, he was able to transform these same materials into set pieces and even wearable sculptures culminating in a cyber-site series called Aliens of Manila, which documents alien characters inhabiting Manilas' often harsh yet colorful streets.
Aliens of Manila invades Los Angeles Tuesday May 7th for a special rooftop performance at NoMad Los Angeles. Choreographed by Heidi Duckler Dance. Music curation by Gaberial King.
