Lawrence Lek

Lawrence Lek is a London-based artist, filmmaker, and musician working with video game engines, simulation, and architecture. He explores worldbuilding, the creative approach of crafting entire fictional worlds as a form of collage, incorporating elements from the material and virtual worlds to develop narratives of alternate histories and possible futures.
Lek composes soundtracks and conducts live audio-visual mixes of his films, often incorporating live playthroughs of his open-world video games. Soundtrack releases include Temple OST (The Vinyl Factory, 2020) and AIDOL OST (Hyperdub, 2020). Solo exhibitions include Ghostwriter, CCA Prague (2019); Farsight Freeport, HeK, Basel (2019); Nøtel, UKR, Essen (2019); AIDOL, Sadie Coles HQ, London (2019); and 2065, K11, Hong Kong (2018).
