Laurie Schram’s work revolves around themes of a socio-political nature and conceptualises status through objects. A relationship between the fictional and the non-fictional is an important theme. Schram graduated with work mainly focused on currency. Playing with money as a material is a means to examine its power and the promise it bears. Each bill or coin is an expression of utopia in itself, a spell we are under collectively. Altering its physical manifestation and adjusting the narrative teases the rigidity of the game. In recent years Schram has focussed on collaborative work.
Since re-locating to The Netherlands after nearly two decades of living and working in The UK Schram has set up Space Fantastic and had a retrospective exhibition with Unperceived existence at Gallery Shush
