Lindsay Lawson deals with the presence and agency of objecthood in virtual and physical spaces. Her bodies of work investigate states of infatuation with virtual personas and both virtual and physical objects. Her contribution to REALITY, however, is devoted to the feeling of hypocrisy. Her new animated video focuses on the crocodile tear. As the saying goes, crocodiles cry to attract their victims with tears, while they themselves know no compassion. In Lawson’s video Untitled (2020), such a tear shed by a crocodile travels through different worlds. On her flag in front of the TROPEZ the tear is also blowing in the wind.
While working with a wide range of sculptural media including ceramics, fountains, lamps, and 3D printing, the practice of Lindsay Lawson (*1982 in Biloxi) also encompasses film, video, installation, photography, performance, and text. In addition to her fascination with objects and their role in society, she wittily comments on the essential role of digital platforms (such as Ebay, okCupid etc.). She currently exhibits at the Berlin Efremidis Gallery, among others.
