Lauren Wy (California, b. 1987) investigates the desiring body and psyche as fractal narrative and residue of process and color. She builds stories from fragments found in both real and digital space; focusing on the use of esoteric media to speak of the digitally assisted body/landscape axis as it evolves in the present future climate and political crisis. Lauren’s work centers the femme, the animal and landscape (domestic, natural and metropolitan) as subject; treating them all with themes of ennui and bacchanal chaos. Lauren is a nomad artist currently based in Torino. Wy received her Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Northwestern University in 2020. Prior to 2018, Wy’s work and life originated in the punk and noise music scene in South Florida and Chicago. Her work was most recently shown in a solo presentation called AUTODESIRE part 1 at Western Exhibitions, the New Art Dealers Association in Miami, the Western Exhibitions Drawing Biennial in Chicago IL; ANTI, the 6th Athens Biennale in Greece; Kunstraum Walcheturm in Zurich, Apparatus Projects and Practise Gallery. In April of 2022 AUTODESIRE: Chapter 9: “Grift X” is inside the exhibition _Espressioni: Con Frazioni at Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Turin, Italy.
