Lumpers And Splitters says
Prairie Underground is pleased to present our 5th Artist Series featuring the solo work of Glasgow / Balfast based artist Lauren Gault

lumpers and splitters
Opening Reception
Saturday, April 8th
5pm - 9pm

'lumpers and splitters' is an installation of new sculptural work by Lauren Gault. Continuing her exploration into matter inhabitance, the 'hyper object' and working through ways to get within or behind sculpture the artist has made a suite of new objects in the UK whilst responding to Prairie Underground as a 'site'.
The new installation includes works made from memory, performative matter, foam carvings and Prairie Underground's 'garment ghosts'.

The exhibit also features a text composed between Sierra Stinson and Lauren Gault.

We will have our boutique open for people to shop the Prairie Underground online and Spring collection
