Lulu Allison

Lives and works in Brighton, UK

Much of Lulu Allison's work lies with the unfixed, such as works in newspaper put up in the wild, town or country. They last a short time, a temporary intervention in spaces decorated by sprayed graffiti, spilled paint, decay, the slowly changing forms of plants. The news print itself is sometimes relevant.

Lulu makes other temporary interventions in the form of pop up triumphal arches and tent monuments, sculpture in a bag. She is fascinated by the will to do pointless things; relentlessly reaching for new, unnecessary ends, striving for an imagined better. It is both marvelous and ridiculous, glorious and distressing. She uses the household debris of other lives as the raw materials, seas of china and bedding, items that themselves have become unfixed, not quite waste, but unwanted. They turn into a triumphal arch, a celebration of events that no one will remember anyway, a celebration of the pointless beauty of all our glorious and partial endeavour.

Recent public exhibits include her participation in Grey Area, Brighton, 2010 and MKFringe: Pavement and Street Art Festival, Milton Keynes, 2010. Lulu graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Brighton University in 1994. Lulu lives and works in Brighton, UK.
