LOCAL A.I.R THE WALLS GC
In residence June – August 2021 // Solo exhibition September 4 – 19 2021The artist explores site-specific found industrial materials, functional objects and materiality to better understand the forces of production that exist autonomously within urban landscapes. By working situationally, specifically in the public space, she considers the intersection of different spatial practices and how specific objects are used to direct community experiences.
Laurie’s process will be responsive to “unspaces”, with a focus on industrial areas and construction sites. Employing techniques of documentation, collection, intervention, installation, alteration and deconstruction, the artist will study the materiality of function. The artist offers a new spatial interaction and general rejection of artwork-based narratives.
“What does it mean to give agency to the material, to follow the material and act with the material?”
