You Blow My Mind – Exhibition by Artist Lauren Baker
You Blow My Mind is a current exhibition by Hackney-based artist, Lauren Baker. The show is taking place at the Hang-Up Gallery in Stoke Newington, London, and also features a collaboration between Lauren Baker and artist Sequin Kay. The exhibition runs until the 24th January 2014 – see you there this weekend?
The following pictures and extract (below) has been taken from the Hang-Up Gallery’s website.
“The show will take you on a journey through Baker’s Enchanted Afterlife series of beautifully hand painted, embellished human and animal skulls and then onto The Storm, an appreciation of science in the form of a powerful sound and light installation set up in room two of the gallery. The production will incorporate lightning bolts, smoke and crackling thunder.
Baker’s work explores the relationship between life, death and afterlife – inspired by time spent in the Peruvian Amazon and the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. By experimenting with different colours and textures such as crystal and neon, the artist aims to challenge the perception of her chosen objects. Each piece holds a unique spiritual power, creating an added depth.”
