Lauren Brincat’s practice encompasses diverse media, from video and performance to sculpture and installation. Influenced by her formal training in painting, the artist considers herself to be ‘a painter despite not using a brush or paint’.

Her work has been included in group exhibitions such as LANDSEASKY, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, South Korea (2014); The Space Between Us: Anne Landa Award, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney (2013); Contemporary Australia: Women, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2012); TarraWarra Biennial 2012: Sonic Spheres, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Healesville (2012); and Tinnitus: A Symposium on Art and Rock ’n’ Roll, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts (2012).
