Lauren Abineri: Alter / Altar says
"Why do people call it feminine? Because it is light, fragile, pale? Because it is weak, impermanent? When you start going to work on it you realise how ridiculous the description is. How can a work of art be feminine?"
– Karla Black

Lauren Abineri is an emerging artist/writer and recent Honours graduate of the South Australian School of Art. Her studio practice reflects on hyper feminine alter-egos, her installations attempt to convey landscapes / spaces where these alter-egos might be expressed. She is particularly interested in the sculptural possibilities of everyday materials, especially materials that are culturally conditioned to be associated with ‘femininity’ and as such, the aesthetic cues of feminist art.

She has exhibited at SASA Gallery, UniSA, Format Festival 2014, Paper Mountain (WA). She is currently a co-director of FELTspace.

Opening night will feature a live art-pop performance by Lauren's current alter ego, Jem.
