Lawrence Abu Hamdan (1985, LB) is an artist and audio investigator. With audiovisual installations, lecture performances, photography and text, he translates in-depth research and investigative work into affective spatial experiences.

Exploring the ‘politics of listening’ and the role of sound and voice within the law and human rights, he often works with human rights organisations and international prosecutors to help obtain aural testimonies for legal and historical investigations. His work stitches together civil, criminal, human, marital, theological and supernatural topics.

He received his PhD in 2017 from Goldsmiths London and is a practitioner affiliated with Forensic Architecture. He was nominated for the 2019 Turner Prize, which he jointly won with Tai Shani, Oscar Murillo and Helen Cammock. He is represented by Maureen Paley (London), Mor-Charpentier (Paris) and Sfeir-Semler (Beirut).
