Wilson investigates the forces of representation that determine our understanding of the material world.

About

Laura Wilson (b.1983, Belfast, N. Ireland) is an artist based in London.  Wilson investigates  the forces of representation that determine our understanding of the material world. Her practice is wide-ranging, working across performance, sculpture, video and lectures. Negotiation is a necessary strategy in the production of her work, which often involves collaborations or exchanges with specialists, enacting the creation or displacement of materials and ideas. Wilson has developed a specific interest in how methods for hand-making bread are passed from generation to generation, and how this process provides a counterpoint to the increasing pace of mechanical production and technologies used today. Whilst at Delfina Foundation, Wilson developed Trained on Veda, an exploration of Veda Bread, a dark brown malt loaf produced in Northern Ireland, UK. Selected exhibitions and performances include: SPACE, London (2016); Site Gallery, Sheffield (2016); Workshop East, London (2016); Whitstable Biennale 2014, Whitstable, UK (2014); Camden Arts Centre, London, UK (2013); RIBA, London (2016); Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK (2013); OUTPOST, Norwich, UK (2012); W139, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2012); De Warande, Turnhout, Belgium (2012); Clonlea Studios, Dublin, Ireland (2011); Vitrine Gallery, London, UK (2011); Siobhan Davies Studios, London, UK (2010).
