Lauren Brincat is an artist who works across diverse media from video and performance to sculpture and installation. Interested in sound sculptures and performance instruments, her work explores non-verbal modes of expression through narrative or ideas. By distancing us from a logical, direct, language-based understanding, her work opens doors to multiple perspectives and interpretations.
Her recent work includes sculptural forms that can be activated by participants. In 2022, Brincat showcased ‘Tutti Presto fff’ at the Sydney Opera House for Vivid Sydney, collaborating with Leah Giblin and Alyx Dennison, as well as a solo exhibition ‘Women with Fringes etc.’ at Anna Schwartz Gallery. In 2021, Brincat was included in the TarraWarra Biennial: ‘Slow Moving Waters’ and in 2020 worked with the Kaldor Public Art Project 36: ‘do it (Australia)’. In 2016, Brincat presented ‘Salt Lines: Play It As It Sounds, Performance Instruments’, a site-specific installation at Carriageworks as part of the Biennale of Sydney. Brincat’s works are represented in major collections, including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney; Art Gallery of Western Australia, Perth; Chartwell Collection, Auckland. Lauren has been awarded the AGNSW Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris Studio in 2023.
