Over the past decade, lok’s practice has evolved to incorporate experimental, collaborative, research-driven and interdisciplinary approaches. Several recent projects have developed through dialogues with moving image archivists (Faster, Higher; NEWS/REEL), and collaborations with composers, choreographers, and dancers (Golden; DIY Ballroom). Significant and recurring themes in her work concern ideas of aspiration, amateurism, and endeavour.
lok is currently working on a new commission for the ‘Everything Flows’ project which will be presented at De La Warr Pavilion 30 June to 16 September 2012.
