Lauren Dunn is an artist working predominately with photography, occupying the idea of photographic thinking through other materials such as sculpture and video as a means of twisting the codes and conventions of mainstream photography. With an inherent interest in popular consumption trends and their associated images, Dunn utilises her practice to understand and the question the power structure influencing our consumer desires, ethics and the broader impact of commodity culture.
Dunn has participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions in Melbourne, Sydney and the USA. Selected exhibitions include; Greener pastures, Kyneton Stockroom, The Green Sheen, BUS projects, Still Life Pt II, Verge Gallery Sydney, Fruit & Veg & Parodies, LON gallery, Heavy Duty, CalArts (USA), Spring 1883 (Sydney 2017, 2018 & 2019) LON gallery.
She has been the recipient of a number of prizes including the Myer Family Foundation Prize, Abbotsford Convent start up studio residency award and the David Fell Photography Award. Dunn’s work is held in private and public collections in Australia and internationally as well.
