Lorrain Mailer

Lorrain Mailer creates fragile sculptures and installations from everyday domestic and humble objects. Inherent are the physical and contextual characteristics of the materials, which she transforms to provoke questions and open a dialogue.

Her practice brings into focus and unpicks subconscious conditioning in British society. This conceals our collective and instinctive drive to survive by conflict and domination. Mailer suggests that humans are predatory by nature and to justify this mankind has sought to find mitigating answers to their actions and the consequences of those actions.
