Lauren Ewing - common House
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.
Ewing 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.
