Born in the United States and living in Berlin, Lindsay Lawson received her BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, her MFA in New Genres from UCLA, and attended the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main.
Her work spans variety of media including video, film, sculpture, performance, photography, and a specific brand of contractual agreement she calls Arrangements. Her practice deals with issues of presence and objecthood in virtual and physical spaces. Numerous recent projects investigate states of infatuation with virtual personas and both virtual and physical objects. Her first feature-length film, The Smiling Rock was shot in Berlin and is currently in post-production during residencies at Trinity Square Video in Toronto as a guest of the Goethe Institut as well as at 1646 in The Hague. Lawson's most recent solo exhibition titled The Inner Lives of Objects featured 23 vase and panel sculptures filled with various everyday objects. Other recent exhibitions include Home Work at Open Forum, Berlin; January Blues at Frutta Gallery, Rome; A Perfect Lie at Jeanroch Dard, Brussels; Rocks, Stones, and Dust at Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, Toronto. Upcoming exhibitions include ob-iectum sub-iectum at Galerie Tobias Naehring, Leipzig, and a solo exhibition at 1646, The Hague. Lawson is represented by Gillmeier Rech Gallery in Berlin.
