Hey, I’m Lauren and I am a visual artist.
Born in Leeds and inspired by a life long love of VHS aesthetics and the likes of Pippilotti Rist and Mark Lecky; visual artist Lauren Harrison, cuts, pastes, resamples and distorts found footage to assemble immersive live visual landscapes. Armed with a midi controller and a laptop, her sets seek not to be a distraction but to collaborate, enrich and invoke.
Since graduating from the University of Reading in 2013, Lauren has returned to Leeds, where she has been constantly adding to her library of material, both found and home footage, to create a catalogue of tidbits ripe for the picking, ready for anything thrown at her.
Each show is done on the fly and no two shows are the same.
