Lauren Chipeur is an artist based in Calgary on Treaty 7 Territory. She makes sculpture and installations using ceramic processes as a way to untangle new ways to know things. Her current research investigates the chemistry and complexity of matter as a way to reflect on the parallel and opposing belief systems about our shared material realities. She has exhibited at galleries and artist-run spaces including the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge), Centre Clark (Montréal), Neutral Ground (Regina), FOFA Gallery (Montréal), Pushmi-Pullyu (Toronto), Embassy Gallery (Edinburgh) and Stride Gallery (Calgary). She graduated with an MFA from Concordia University in 2019 and since then spent time as an artist in residence at Medalta (Medicine Hat), the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Zentrum für Ceramic (Berlin) and Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Centre (Denmark). Her work has received support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, Calgary Arts Development and Canada Council for the Arts.
