Lauren Brown

Graduating from the National Art School in 2002, Lauren Brown has since exhibited in a range of artist-run-spaces and public places in London, Sydney and Melbourne. Now based in Melbourne, Lauren is a recent RMIT Masters Graduate in Public Art and her work is currently focused on sound in the public space. Her main motif is the use of the colour red as a prime indicator.

Lauren is also half of the collaborative duo, The Candystripers, with pop-artist Gemma Jones.

within a practice investigating sound in the public realm, the jack series of necklaces, brooches and cufflinks are an elicit peep at the love affair between sound and fashion and the common point of difference between public and private wear.

these accessories are the point of insertion: the money shot between the sound and that heard, between the inside and the outside, between you and me.

Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
