Independent artist-researcher • she/her
Lauryn is artist-researcher. She holds an M.A. in Contemporary Art and New Media from Université Paris 8 (2009). In her artistic work, Mannigel questions the Western cultural dominance of visual epistemology by exploring the perception of the sense of smell, hearing, touch and taste. Thematically, her work is driven by diverse manifestations of social and cultural inequalities. Currently, Mannigel creates experiential and discursive social spaces that explore the social olfactory perception and judgment of others body scents. In this line of work, she has developed and presented the performative experiments Love Sweat Love (2016), Eat Me (2018), Smell Feel Match (2019) and I smell a rat (2019) in Europe, Canada and India.
