Amanda Lorens works in the space between particular social situations and live art. Incorporating video and audio installation with live art, her current work uses tango to reveal the intimacy of human inter-relationships. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and has been engaged in international research in India, Australia, Italy, Albania and South America. Much of her recent work is inspired by these travels, from filming laundry being washed on the banks of the River Ganges to tango in the atmospheric dance halls of Buenos Aries.
