Lauren Gault considers the political and ethical implications of our interactions with matter and the environment. Her work evokes intangible encounters with non-human experiences of time, space and physicality. In her sculptures, materials as diverse as silicone rubber, blown glass, pumped air, stitched suede, water or agricultural milk powder are subject to change through actions and physical processes that often involve pressure, tension and release. Exploring the transitions between different states of matter and scales of experience, Lauren's work creates a space for objects to communicate and resonate with one another.
