Lawrence English is media artist, composer and curator based in Australia. Working across an eclectic array of aesthetic investigations, English’s work prompts questions of field, perception and memory. He utilises a variety of approaches including sound, installation, projection and polymedia objects to create works that meditate on subtle transformations of space and ask audiences to consider that which might sit at the edge of or beyond their perception. His pieces have been presented widely in Europe, the UK and Japan, as well as in the USA, NZ and Australia.

English has worked on a number of collaborative exhibitions, including the sound installation Bathe with Yokohama based artist Toshiya Tsunoda, a series of public artworks, including collaborations with Kim Demuth and Eluned Lloyd titled

Triumvirate and Portalis, as well as Sombre Verde, a recent temporal public art piece and sound installation into the Brisbane City centre.

As a curator, English is actively involved in the development and increased recognition of sound art within Australia, curating an ongoing series of sound related projects for the Institute Of Modern Art, exhibitions of international sound artists such as Melatonin, Gravities Of Sound and Audible Geography.

Outside of his art practise, English composes provocative sound and music of which Signal To Noise calls ‘extraordinarily gorgeous modern music concréte’.
