| Lauren Ewing is a sculptor and installation
artist. Her art addresses the relationship of individuals to
institutions, the collapse of nature into culture and the vast
construct of material culture in relation to memory and desire.
Many of her site sculptures and installations are polyvocal.
They involve image, materiality, simulation, language, sound
and unique electronic texts which are thematically provocative
and richly poetic.
She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in
galleries and in museum installations, including Diane Brown
Gallery, Castelli Graphics, John Weber Gallery, Sonnabend Gallery,
the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC; The New Museum of Contemporary
Art, New York; the Decordova Museum, Massachusetts, Storm King
Art Center, New York, Kunstverein Ludwigsburg, Germany; Kunsthallen
Brandts Klaedefabrik, Denmark; Interim Art, London and the Sydney
Biennale, Australia. Her work is in many private and public
collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New
York, MoMA in New York, the Chase Manhattan Bank Collection in New York, the Cleveland
Center for Contemporary Art, the Walt Disney Collection, the
San Diego Contemporary, the Virlane Foundation in New Orleans
and many others. Her site sculptures are located in many American
cities including Seattle, Sacramento, Bernardsville and Bordentown,
New Jersey, Atlantic City, Denver and Philadelphia.
