Janet Laurence

Prolific installation artist Janet Laurence explores notions of art, science, imagination, memory, and loss, with her practice examining our physical, cultural, and conflicting relationship to the natural world.

Exhibiting nationally and internationally, Laurence creates immersive environments that navigate the interconnections between all living forms, and the Australian Design Centre believes her large-scale works have played a pivotal role in putting Australian installation art on the map. A recipient of Rockefeller, Churchill and Australia Council Fellowships, and the Alumni Award for Arts, UNSW, Laurence’s work is included in many museum, university and corporate collections as well as in architectural and landscaped public places.
