LAUREN HILLEBRANDT

Lauren Hillebrandt, born 1988, lives and works in Amsterdam

"Main themes in Lauren Hillebrandt’s work are boredom, daily routine and the everyday life. By forcing objects into new scenarios, she tries to reinvent their original purpose, achieving a sense of absurdism that parallels her paradoxical feelings towards a ‘daily, normal life’ of which she often gets fed up or bored with. Thereby Hillebrandt tries to create a world that suits her imagination." - Ignant

"Dutch photographer Lauren Hillebrandt’s work concerns itself with the ordinary and making it a bit more interesting. She takes everyday items such as lemons, bananas, milk cartons, and repurposes their context and meaning. The results, while visually simple, are nothing short of delightful." - Trendland
