Lauren Hall lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Hall offers situations under the assumption that all materiality has agency; exhibitions want an audience, pop music wants to be loved, myopia wants us to look closely. The objects of disease, spare-time and wellness are as important as the objects she places together herself. The materials reveal themselves at different speeds, often using scent, motion or sound to establish a particular atmosphere or tempo for looking.
Solo shows include: Private Secretaries, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, UK (2017); Real Boy, Voidoid Archive, Glasgow, UK (2016); Felt, Erin Stump Projects, Toronto, CA (2014). Group shows include: Festiv Town, Oosterpark, Amsterdam, NL (2016); Wicked Problem, Friche la Belle de Mai, Marseille, FR (2016); Life Like, Transmission, Glasgow, UK (2015); That’s Genetic, 16 Nicholson St., Glasgow, UK (2015).

Social Event - Curated by Love Unlimited
Taking place in a public swimming pool, Social Event is a sculptural and performance-based event that’s immersive in the most literal sense. Performances will take place in and around the pool. Sculptures will be floating and submerged, with the audience viewing the work from within the water.
The artists respond to the public pool’s political history, the context of health and leisure, as well as issues concerning the body and gender by making diverse works which require activation through audience participation, both directly and through more subtle means.
If you have any special requirements please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Sat 21 April, Wed 25 April & Sat 28 April

Josée Aubin Ouellette, Jennifer Bailey, Suzanne Déry, Aideen Doran, Lauren Hall, and Claire Shallcross
Bone Meal brings together six Glasgow-based artists to show new work at The Hidden Gardens. Using performance and writing to develop sculpture, sound, and video installations, our work engages with the living and life-supporting elements of the garden.
Used as a nutritional supplement and fertiliser, bone meal speaks to the bodily resonance and interconnectivity of materials in our cycles of production and reproduction.
A performance and reading event will be held in support of the exhibition.
Supported by Glasgow International, Creative Scotland, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Canada House and the Cass Sculpture Foundation.
Thu 19 April – Mon 7 May
