B. 1982 in the United States and living in Berlin, Lindsay Lawson received her BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University, her MFA in New Genres from UCLA, and attended the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. Her work spans media such as film, video, installation, photography, sculpture, performance, text, and particular types of contractual legal agreements, she named 'Arrangements'. Her practice often deals with issues of presence and objecthood in virtual and physical spaces. Numerous recent projects investigate states of infatuation with virtual personas and both virtual and physical objects. She recently presented a large-scale performance titled Choreography for Crane as part of the 9th Berlin Biennale.
