We Love London

Internationally acclaimed artist Lauren Baker has brought her new exhibtion to London, exploring dreams, vision, love and spirituality through silence.

‘Ten Days Of Silence’ runs until Sunday 29th May 2022 and focuses on the ten days of silence Lauren experienced during her travels through Mexico, with the exhibit a reflection of her inner journey, with the highs and lows she experienced. 
Lauren explains; “Many of us are afraid of silence. We’re always doing something - thinking, texting, music, TV - to occupy the space. Being quiet and taking space is fundamental to happiness, and yet we often neglect this.” 
Lauren continues; ‘The ten days of silence I experienced, felt like a rollercoaster. My heart broke open. I cried tears of joy. My compassion grew, and my empathy grew. It felt like my vision expanded from tunnel to near 360 vision. The source of love is deep within us, and we make a daily choice to lift others with a word, an action, a thought - to bring joy. This is what I would like each person to experience through my work’  
A further inspiration to her new pieces were the letters Lauren wrote during the ‘Ten Days Of Silence’. The multi-disciplinary artist wrote letters to herself, earth, the universe, past lover, and a future lover.  Bursting with texture and energy, they are hand stitched in sound frequency form, using everything from feathers to metal wire.  
The new mystical works involve Yantra’s. A Yantra is a symbol which you stare at to gain spiritual enlightenment. The artwork comprises of a series of sacred geometrical shapes and from which colours and a feeling of light emanates. Through these artworks, Lauren takes the viewers into a sensorial experience of light and colour. 
Artworks explore contemporary and ancient symbolism and rituals to connect dreams, vision, love and spirituality. ‘Ten Days Of Silence’ features neon light, mosaic, and metal sculpture. Works are also on canvas and print.  
The exhibition runs from Friday 6th to Sunday 29th May at 99 Projects, 99 Chamberlayne Road, London, NW10 3ND.
