Lauren Banka


Lauren Banka grew up with her mother telling her to always say exactly what she thinks, and it took her years to learn tact. She is interested in interrogating power structures, narratives of pain and violence, and the body. She is a Virgo ENFJ born in the year of the Horse. Lately the line between her visual arts work and her poetry has become more and more blurred.
