Lilah Fowler

United Kingdom, 1981. Lives and work in London (UK).

Lilah Fowler’s work examines the common, mutable languages that inform how we interpret our surroundings. Sculptures, images and other elements draw on sources that include the planning of natural and urban environments and their architectural design values, combining into responsive and intricate installations. Recent works have involved collaborations with biochemists, quantum physicists, computer programmers, mathematicians and weavers. For her most recent body of work she has spent several research periods in the South West of the USA, the Lake District and Dungeness, UK, including residencies at Montello Foundation, Nevada, USA (2016) and Joshua Tree Desert Highlands, California, USA (2013). Recent exhibitions include ‘Code Clay, Data Dirt’ at Firstsite, Colchester; ‘nth nature’ at Galerie Gisela Clement, Bonn and Assembly Point, London; ‘Bauhaus’ at Frauenmuseum Bonn; ‘Sie Machen Was Sie Wollen’ at Varna City Gallery, Bulgaria, curated by Mélange, Cologne; and ‘PURE LIGHT’ at Vasarely Museum, Budapest, curated by Dora Mauer.
