Gudrun Lock’s work addresses themes of garbage and waste, women’s roles in society, and the fine line between stable and unstable mental states. She often uses found materials and relies on the narrative form as a mechanism for disseminating her ideas.

Lock 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, the Tweed Museum of Art, the Feminist Art Conference in Toronto, and on MNTV.
