Abigail Lane’s playful, macabre videos, photographs, digital media, and sculptural installations are dark explorations of the psyche, inspired by a late 19th-century Gothic aesthetic. Frequently, she draws on the imagery from séances, circuses, and magic shows, to make such wide ranging works as wallpaper with a repeated design of her rear-end, a sound installation of scratching and scraping noises heard behind a shut door, and wax replicas of bodily fragments suspended from the ceiling.
Lane received a BA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College in London and is associated with the Young British Artists (at Goldsmiths, her work was included in the 1988 group exhibition "Freeze," organized by Damien Hirst). Lane has also exhibited at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among other galleries and institutions. Lane lives and works in Suffolk, England.
