Lauren Huret (Switzerland)

Lauren Huret

lives and works in Geneva, Switzerland. Her main interests all link back to colonization, particularly colonization of the mind. Astonished by the manner in which language and ideas spread into brains and become singular concepts of reality, she explores these modes of dissemination by looking into contemporary narratives that often seem like science fiction (hard science, high frequency trading, artificial intelligence, global corporations, neuroscience, neuromarketing and so on). She mainly transmits her rants and critical phantasms about these complex domains via performance, collages, video or text. Lauren Huret has presented her work at Kunstmuseum Luzern, Kunsthaus Langenthal, Hard Hat in Geneva, Le Consortium of Dijon, Le Magasin of Grenoble, Neue Galerie in New York and Auegarten Atelier in Vienna.

This residency is co-financed by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia and the City of Warsaw.
