SITUATE / 27 July to 23 September 2019 at Sarang Building, Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Lauren Herbison is the recipient of the 2019 studio residency award at the Sarang Building. Lauren will undertake this two-month studio residency in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
Grounded by an honesty and a personal tone, Lauren Herbison’s artistic practice investigates the relationship between site, sculpture and encounter. Her practice places a focus on the activation of forms and materials through the viewers intuited engagement within her installations. Comprised of charged sculptural elements, Lauren’s sensibility largely deals with potential and materiality through a language of drawing and sculptural installation.
Laurens work is always thought of in relation to the viewers body, and how the spatial interactions that occur in her installations draw one closer to an immediate, felt and imaginative experience. Lauren’s practice asks us to consider materials with a lighthearted approach to questions around agency and potential in the contemporary moment.
