Laurie Schram’s (NL) often satirical work revolves around themes of a socio-political nature and status through objects. A relationship between the fictional and the non-fictional has been an important theme. Schram graduated from the Royal College of Art with work mainly focused on altering existing currencies and creating new ones by combining countries and rewriting narratives. She went on to build a fictional jewellery factory as Schram&Sandhu focussing on collaborative work as well as writing and recently having a child.
