Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Immune Stability, an installation by Lauren Elder and Amalia Ulman curated by Lucy Chinen. The installation will be arranged as a showroom consisting of two sculptures, four garments and a video demonstrating the functionality of the garments. These objects will be presented together as a survival kit, designed to cover the essential needs of a nomadic person in a state of emergency.
Born in 1990 in Los Angeles, Lauren Elder lives and works between Los Angeles and Chicago. She received a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in new media and sculpture. Elder's work explores the presentation of artifacts in museum and commercial settings. Her work has been exhibited at UMOCA, Salt Lake City; Robert Bills Contemporary, Chicago; MOMA PS1, New York with Perdam Publishing; Oliver Francis Gallery, Dallas and Courtney Blades, Chicago.
