High Steaks - Eloina

We've just added a newbie to the V-agency!

ELOINA is a queer, multidisciplinary, Europe-based artist who makes work somewhere in between performance art & clowning.

ELOINA makes work that dismantles taboos around the female body & how we are taught shame. She mixes epic, body-based performance art and quick, comedy clowning.


This makes her work accessibly impactful at both extremes and the in-betweens of the art world. Since graduating from the innovative Drama degree at Queen Mary University of London in 2018, her solo practice has spread across London, opening conversations about menstruation, body hair, labiaplasty, vaginoplasty, female masturbation and ejaculation, motherhood and breastfeeding.





Her current show, HIGH STEAKS, is about labia, labia-shaming, cosmetic surgery & fundamentally, body lovin'.


ELOINA hangs two beef steaks from her labia, butchers them up & sizzles them on a grill. And...her mum is in the show. Seamlessly melding performance art and comedy clowning, HIGH STEAKS discusses rising demands in young people for labiaplasty - plastic surgery to make the labia smaller/more symmetrical.


Through live conversations with her mum and recorded interviews with labia-owners, HIGH STEAKS is a call for increased visibility of varied vulvas and a celebration of our vulvas in all their shapes & sizes. HIGH STEAKS has been nominated for an OFFIE, won the Summerhall Award, has received only 5 star reviews & is currently on tour around the UK. Visit ELOINA's website for tickets.
