The Centre for Arts and Learning presents: Laura White
Laura White’s practice focuses on a negotiation with the world of stuff, i.e. interactions with materials and objects, exploring ideas of value, profile, association, meaning and behaviour of materials, individual and collections of objects. Things are explored both as material stuff and anthropological signifiers, that are capable of revealing the human condition - vulnerabilities and capabilities, value systems affected by consumerism and material status, and object/human dependencies.
Laura’s work occupies a fluid space; on one hand demanding critical discourse, and on the other their own ambiguous and intuitive logic. This interdisciplinary approach includes: sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, writing and participatory events, such as; 'What it means to handle stuff - auto-pedagogy - a course in butchery’, which saw White bring RCA students and staff from Raven Row Gallery London together to learn butchery skills under the guidance of a professional butcher. This event looked at what it means to learn a skill and to deskill, the environment we learn in and the groups we learn with and skills we can access both as an amateur and as a professional.
Laura’s website ‘Tenderfoot’ launched in 2017, is an on-line space for exploring materiality through personal writing, forums, events and a curated space where artists, writers, and makers contribute. http://www.tenderfoot.co.uk
