Lauren Ewing is a sculptor and installation artist whose works address 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 dramatically provocative and richly poetic.
Ewing has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in galleries and 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, Kunstverein Ludwigsburg, Germany; Kunsthallen Brandts Kleiderfabrik, Denmark; Interim Art, London and the Sydney Biennale Australia. Her work is included in many private and public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, MoMA in New York, the Chase Manhattan Bank Collection, The Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art, the Walt Disney Collection, the San Diego Contemporary, the Virlanie Foundation in New Orleans and many others. Her site-specific sculptures are located in many American cities including Seattle, Sacramento, Bernardsville and Bordentown, New Jersey, Atlantic City, Denver and Philadelphia.
