Lenka Clayton is a conceptual artist whose work considers, exaggerates and reorganizes observations and accepted rules of everyday life, extending the familiar into the realms of the poetic and absurd.  Her work makes use of video, sound,  and installation to present evidence of projects which are often the result of long term investigations. She is currently featured in the MOCA Cleveland exhibition, Realization is Better than Anticipation.
