About

Hang-Up Gallery are delighted to announce their up coming show You Blow My Mind by East London based multimedia artist Lauren Baker. The exhibition promises an intoxicating combination of neon lightning bolts, gold plated fingers, a 6ft infinity coffin and a pumping heart sculpture to name a few. You Blow My Mind will also feature an exciting new collaboration between Lauren Baker and artist Sequin Kay. The show will take you on a journey through Baker’s Enchanted Afterlife series of beautifully hand painted, embellished human and animal skulls and then onto The Storm, an appreciation of science in the form of a powerful sound and light installation set up in room two of the gallery. The production will incorporate lightning bolts, smoke and crackling thunder. The artist’s recent work is heavily inspired by the immense power of nature and primordial energy sources. Baker explores intense magnetic attraction, explosive notions, and a cosmic energy connecting everyone and everything in the universe. Her creative practice of new materials results in a show that will play with all of the senses.
