About Florence Lam
Florence Lam (b. 1992, Vancouver) is a multi-disciplinary conceptual artist based in London.
Her works are mostly time-based where audiences are invited to witness the birth and constant deterioration of material as a performance. She places herself in a position where she is in control of the presentation while simultaneously being completely out of control of how the material performs, therefore creating an illusion of familiar intimacy, exposing the life within the materials as they interact with audiences.
Her works involve direct interaction or play with different sensory perspectives and deprivations in conveying different levels of experience of art, striving to recall her audiences' feeling of pure wonder by bringing in front of their eyes an object that seems physically impossible without life, just as children believed that there were spirits inhabited in the flowing water and sizzling leaves. This is a collective memory for all people regardless of time, place and background, and it is driven by the natural human instinct.
