Self Portrait as Otto Dix' Portrait of the Journalist Sylvia von Harden, 2020
Lauren Haughey is a multidisciplinary visual artist, writer and event organiser based in South Dublin.
Her practice is mainly concerned with exploring our present historical moment; a time of increasing techno-cultural acceleration and profound alienation and disembodiment.
Any profound moment of change is flagged by an permeability of boundaries, and Haughey's practice places a magnifying glass on these intersections of identity and culture. Her work engages with themes of cyborgification; between nature, technology, humanity and culture.
She values magic and mythos, and engages with the inexplicable and illusory as a way of understanding the present world, and generating imaginations of new worlds to come.
