Lauren Godfrey’s work spans sculpture, performance, film and printmaking. Simultaneously exploring the relationship between the spoken and written word, the tension between imagery and text and employing an approach to making as the formation of a sentence in the mouth - on the tip of the tongue. Godfrey’s sculptures often take the form of domestic scaled objects, quasi-furniture or the almost useful. With a sweeping arm that gathers deco, Memphis and hieroglyphs under one armpit and Seinfeld, Nigella and Matisse under the other; borrowing shapes from Gio Ponti and stealing titles from AA Gill, the brow remains neutral. A fusion of high and low, past and present, crude and tasteful, coming together to graft an inquisitive and propositional space in between.
Triangle NYC is a New York based non-profit arts organisation founded in 1982 to support international and U.S. artists. Triangle’s core initiatives – Residencies, Workshops and Public Programs – are centred on dialogue, experimentation and the creation of community around art.
Triangle offers free, spacious studios and a dynamic artistic community to support the development of projects with emphasis on dialogue and experimentation. Triangle's founding concept and current programmes de-emphasise professionalisation and specific outcomes, instead allowing artists generous space, context and community within which to focus on their research, ideas and process.
