Lucienne Cole


My art practice is rooted in popular culture, encompassing Performance, Video, Photography , Drawing/Painting and Collage, reflecting and highlighting the slippages between fantasy and reality in everyday life I also DJ, both in an Art Context and club-nights. My playing of records has been described as "a secular activity”. Brian Eno said- “POP is about creating new and imaginary worlds and inviting people to join them”- I think that’s more or less what I do with my work. "Cole explores art as a form of entertainment and celebration, often engaging people in public spaces where a group of people or a community become the process of the work, allowing her practice to operate in multiple contexts. There is a collective association , where everyone can meet on the same plane through combining nostalgia and familiarity with a do it yourself attitude and aesthetic".
