AboutLaura Reeves explores the commonality of nostalgia and experience. More often than not Laura directly situates herself within the work, using humour and pathos to consider notions of sentimentality. The works take the form of presentations and performance, printed matter and photography to mediate a memory or story.
For her event Laura will use objects, text and projection to consider her practice within the context of Standpoint, and her experience of the residency. Laura will also discuss the new ways in which her writing informs her practice.
Laura Reeves (based in Swansea) is currently on residency at Standpoint Gallery, as part of Standpoint Futures Residencies 2013/14.
Taking place at Standpoint Gallery, London, Standpoint Futures Residencies are for emerging/mid career artists, designed to be flexible and responsive to the project, needs and desired outcomes of individual participants. The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop the artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the regional UK art world to promote access and the exchange of ideas.
Standpoint Futures is supported by Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales, Creative Scotland and the Fenton Arts Trust.
We would also like to acknowledge our regional partners with whom we run the programme and select artists: G39, Chapter, Peacock Visual Arts, Exeter Phoenix and The Royal Standard.
