Karen Lancel

Karen Lancel develops her artwork in collaboration with Hermen Maat, as the artist duo Lancelmaat. 

Karen Lancel utilizes new media and performance in her artistic work that spreads across the public space and the internet. She designs temporary zones, and concepts for meeting places. Lancel's work takes place in public spaces such as museums, theaters, train stations, squares, festivals, libraries, or airports. Here she inquires the changing perception of the public space. She explores the coping strategies involved in the experience of being (un)safe and isolated, and focuses on how these experiences are transformed into personal stories. In collaboration with her audience she gives this ongoing process a personal face to show both the horror and the beauty.

She is also professor of the Interactive Media Environment, the MFA program of the Frank Mohr Institute Groningen.


Karen Lancel takes part in the Test_Lab: Intimate Interfaces on December 10, 2009.
