L'Aubaine

visual artist

 

L’Aubaine (Laurie Bender) VJ, visual artist from Geneva based in London. L’Aubaine started performing live visuals in 2005 while studying a master in Digital Arts in Barcelona. From her study she got interested in real-time performances and exploring different forms of narrative. All elements she uses in her work are self-produced, mixing different techniques, analogue and digital, as hand-drawn animations, illustration, typography, photography, graphical elements and videos. Her creation have that handmade feel, imperfect, bold and very colourful. 

Laurie crafted her unique style over the years by superimposing layers, interlinking shapes and colours, mixing elements from different techniques in an unusual and elegant way. Her VJ sets are evolving compositions, audio-reactive, created live and flowing with the crowd and the music. Each set never look the same, she shares emotions, playfulness and she’s feels like a painter and his canvas. In her AV narrative or Live Cinema projects, she expresses socio/politics/psychological concerns such as immigration, urbanisation and also travelling as a metaphor of an inner quest or as a journey. She uses a similar visual language as her VJ set made of text, videos, animations looped and layered. She usually works with an producer or musician for the audio side of her projects.
