Inspired by biologists investigating bacterial strains as a means of creating supplements to regrow and restore future reefs, Downton responds to the Port Noarlunga reef, with a vivid and immersive ceramic installation mimicking the underwater reef environment. Based in the Riverside Studio, Lauren will spend three months investigating the coastal location and reef environments to inform the making of the work.

An open studio day is to be scheduled during May.

Lauren will be hosting a ceramic focused workshop in July during her exhibition.

More details to come.
