Gudrun Lock addresses themes of garbage and waste, women’s roles in society and the fine line between stable and unstable mental states in her work. She often uses found materials and relies on the narrative form as a mechanism for disseminating her ideas. She has installed her work in foreclosed homes, storefronts, bars, a houseboat and a soon-to-be demolished apartment building as well as in Union Square park and the Atlantic Ocean. Her video work has been shown at the Montréal Underground Film Festival, on MNTV and at the Tweed Museum. She received her MFA from the University of Minnesota in 2007.
