LEAH DYJAK is an interdisciplinary, lens-based artist whose work combines performance, labor, film, and photography to explore how generations of human use affect the ecologies of place. Dyjak’s images and site-specific installations often push the edges of perception by manipulating surfaces with either the lens or in physical space. Their work challenges out understanding perceived boundaries and charts matters in-flux. Their current work and research are being conducted in disappearing lands are Southern Louisiana with a specific focus on infrastructure failure and the attempted control of the Mississippi River.
Dyjak received their MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Their work is in multiple private collections and has been acquired the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University. They are a recipient of a Goldfarb Fellowship at the internationally renowned Djerassi Resident Artist Program in Woodside California. Dyjak is summer faculty at the Anderson Ranch and is represented by the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown Massachusetts. Their work has been exhibited widely in places such as the Houston Center of Photography, Blue Star Contemporary, and The Front Gallery in New Orleans.
