31 May 2007 - 3 June 2007
Miranda Laughlin is the taxonomer, the librarian and the collector. Each piece, although separate, is part of a wider fluxing mass. Motifs – possessed objects, illusions, natural symmetries, plants, feet and agriculture, amongst others – run through her work as if part of a lexicon.
Her work involves looking and sorting out, placing, searching and re-searching. The work hinges on something missing, lost or impossible. It revels in the inevitability of failure but also the effort made to prevent it. She sees the world as a machine, and makes what is inside outside, as if thoughts could be seen.
Born in 1983, Laughlin graduated from Sheffield Hallam University in 2005 followed by an MA from Chelsea College of Art in 2006. She received a Nick Park Bursary in 2005. This is her first one-person exhibition.
