Lauren Huret (1984) lives in Geneva after having completed a MFA at HEAD-Genève in 2013. Her interests range from tech-mysticism & brain hacking to complex human feelings. Astonished by the manner in which language and ideas spread into minds and become singular concepts of reality, she explores these modes of dissemination by looking into contemporary narratives that often seem like science fiction (artificial intelligence, global corporations or neurosciences for example). She mainly transmits her rants and critical phantasms about these complex domains via performances, collages, videos or artist books. Lauren Huret has presented her work at Kunsthaus Langenthal, Hard Hat in Geneva, Le Consortium of Dijon, La Panacée in Montpellier, Le Magasin of Grenoble, Neue Galerie in New York and Copenhagen Contemporary. Performances have been shown at Kunstmuseum Luzern, Les Urbaines of Lausanne and Schinkel Pavillon in Berlin. In 2016/17, Lauren was a resident at the Center for Contemporary art Zamek Ujazdowski, Warsaw.
