On November 18th, 2016, Lauren Collin will be exhibiting 13 pieces from her exclusive collection of her latest bas-reliefs series at the LIAIGRE New York townhouse. This exhibition in particular, allows Lauren’s pieces to be exposed to an environment and light outside of the typical gallery space, providing a unique reading to the paper achievements. Light, layout and material form allow the viewer to observe the subtle and unique dialogue between Lauren’s works and the space in which they are displayed. This circumstance is crucial during her creative approach as these factors have a significant impact on how the viewer will perceive the work. The 13 pieces on exhibition are displayed in a variety of sizes and layouts.
