Lauren Allen plays with the role of our architectural surroundings. The work alters our perception of the space around us by manipulating scale and language of architectural designs.
The work compares the form and mass of architecture with personal interaction of space and ownership to form an abstraction of the quotidian. She questions the vulnerability of our environment, touching on social responsibility and issues surrounding our society.
Drawing from Modernistic/Brutalist industrial and residential buildings, the work plays with materials by forcing, joining and bonding them together. Concrete, fabric, cement and glass are materials commonly used in her work.
Join us to celebrate creativity and spot the stars of the future this summer. Eclectic exhibitions of art, design, fashion, communication and performance are taking place at sites across London from April to September and are free to attend.More information
