Her solo show, Transition, launched at The Ivy on 31 July 2015 for a week and caused a buzz with people queuing around the block. The show received rave reviews, such as; ‘Incredible’ (Art Collector), ‘stunning pieces’ Fad magazine, ‘a potent and colourful new body of work’ (Art, Antiques, Design). Lauren was interviewed by LONDON LIVE TV about the show.
Renowned for her work using reflective material – including the world’s first infinity mirror coffin at Tate Britain, a 7-ft mirrored geometric ‘Portal to another dimension’ commissioned by Clerkenwell Design Week, and 100 mirror eyes attached to 50ft trees in the forest at Unknown Festival, Croatia.
Following the success of her workshop and skull art installation at Tate Modern (Jul 12), Baker was invited by Tate Britain to host a large-scale interactive installation, in which she turned part of Tate Britain into a forest to set the scene for the world’s first infinity mirror coffin as part of her modern deconstruction of John Everett Millais’ ‘Ophelia’ painting (14).
As an Ambassador for Save Wild Tigers, Lauren spoke at the gala dinner in Malaysia to an audience of 650 people, including the Sultana of Malaysia (Oct 14).
Lauren curated THRIVE, an exhibition of 20 contemporary artists, exhibited at the Sanderson, London and auctioned in aid of Save Wild Tigers at the Mango Tree tiger dinner, London (May 14). The events raised £62K. All funds go to the Born Free Foundation and the Environmental Investigation Agency. Lauren continues to support the charity with exciting plans for the future.
For Frieze Week, Baker collaborated with BMW Culture X Frieze to launch public light art; ‘One Thought Changes Everything’.
