A public lecture by Artist Laura White
Date: 25 October 2012
Exploring the language of sculpture, Laura White uses a range of materials from everyday objects to constructed matter. She is interested in a relationship and negotiation with the ‘stuff’ of the world, from the readymade to the handmade, cheap reproduced goods to antiquity, playing with ideas of value, profile, association and meaning of individual and collections of objects.
The work she makes uses and refers to categories of objects, such as church relics, modernist sculptures, classical equestrian monuments, to name a few. In making works that allude to these objects and by placing them in proximity to one another, they are both reduced to an accumulation of stuff and souvenir, while also demanding a critical and historical discourse, where taste and value are challenged.
