Lauren Brincat’s SHOOT FROM THE HIP is the Sydney based artist’s first solo exhibition. Currently showing at Anna Schwartz Gallery in Sydney, Brincat’s exhibition includes installation and video works. 

A feature piece is a full sized sail suspended from the roof of the gallery to which the artist has attached hundreds of ‘tell tails’ created from collected old cassette mix tapes. Brincat's early works were imbued with references to rock and roll music, and many featured her performing with various pieces of percussion - drum kits, snare drums, and cymbals.

The recipient of the 2009 Helen Lempriere Travelling scholarship, Brincat has exhibited across Australia and internationally. Her work now features in the collections of MONA, the MCA and in winter this year will be featured in a new exhibition at Queensland’s GOMA.
