Lauren has been selected by the ONE Project to take part in an innovative residency during lockdown.
Alongside a small group of other artists and creatives, Lauren will be spending 3 days reading and discussing a philosophical or theoretical art text in depth.
“The main goal of the ONE Book Residency is creating a tranquil, offline space for a particular period of time for artists who want to immerse solely in the activity of reading one theoretical or philosophical book. The project is referring to the times we live in that are full of distractions and related to the unattainable chase for Internet content and visual overflow everywhere. We know how hard it is to stay focused.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis and social-distancing regulations, we have decided to move the second edition of ONE BOOK Residency program online, and to shift its focus from the individual experience to the communal practice. We believe that creating the opportunity to concentrate will be helpful in forging a deeper relationship with the selected text, making your life during the lockdown period more stimulating, as well as diverting your attention from disquieting news.
The aim of the open call is to create a group of people with diverse theoretical or/and artistic backgrounds. The online residency will take 3 days and will end with a discussion.” – taken from the ONE Book Open Call.
