Laurence uses her art process as a map; her work is rooted in a fascination for transformative processes.
She creates installations/performances which reflects the energy of physical, emotional and social displacements.
She uses the surrounding natural elements, traditional skills and historical or current narratives as reflective materials, to draw pathways to inner and outer change.
In her recent work, she is specifically interested to explore how preconceived ‘Cultural identities’, can be used to negotiate a socially engaged practice and be developed as ‘stratagems’ to negotiate new places and situations.
Treading on the footsteps of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, Beuys’ concept of “social sculpture” and ‘psychogeographs’ Rebecca Solnit and Phil Smith, she uses a phenomenological approach to exploring the land and people.
She likes to undertake challenges, often pushing the limits of feasibility, made possible through the learning and sharing of new skills and collaboration with local communities.
