Erica Scourti’s mytho-biographic performance explores the automation of personality, drawing on ancient Greek tales of the underworld and the notion of human and technological proxies. This performance traces a speculative situation of the artist being fired from her own job and replaced by automated affective agents and human assistants, questioning the role of efficiency-enhancers in an economy that valorises the authentic presence of the artist.  Personal Proxies  humorously explores self-doubt, anxieties of legacy and self-improvement.

Assistants for this performance are Maria D Sotiropoulou, Skye Arundhati Thomas and Afra Zamara.
