Affiliation with Shape: Lauren won one of our Emergence Bursaries in 2018.

Lauren Saunders is an award-winning and socially-engaged interdisciplinary visual artist living & working in Hull, UK. Her work responds to philosophical questions by systematically dissecting, capturing, interrogating and translating thoughts and experiences through collage and by drawing in the expanded field. The intellectual, sensual and material sits in relation to the concepts, subjects, media, contexts and surfaces explored within her participatory practice.

Lauren graduated with a 1:1 whilst her work explored the rhizomatic nature of reality; she has since turned to exploring environmental philosophy and Deep Ecology. Lauren has also worked professionally in theatres, colleges, healthcare and community settings and on various public engagement projects.
