Laurence creates installations in social, geographical and historical contexts, highlighting the relationship between individuals and their environment. Her work investigates emotional responses to the notions of time, origin and places; our experience of nature is mediated by the history and culture embedded in the shaping of the landscape.
Laurence’s work weaves collective and personal narratives together, conveying a sense of displacement and impermanence which is transformed into new possibilities.
She undertakes challenges which often push the limits of feasibility, made possible through collaboration with a local communities, other artists, architects and engineers.
Laurence is currently undertaking a practice based research on Art, traditional skills, environment and social innovation through the various residencies she takes.
