Rosemary Laing: poems for recent times
Galerie Lelong & Co.
Galerie Lelong & Co. is pleased to present Rosemary Laing: poems for recent times, new works from the artist’s latest series of the same title. Born in 1959 in Brisbane, Australia, Rosemary Laing originally trained as a painter before moving to the medium of photography in the late 1980s. Known for her photo-based work that is cinematic in vision and created with real-time performance and physical installation as opposed to digital manipulation, Laing meticulously stages interventions in culturally and historically resonant locations across Australia.
Her work is informed by post-colonial perspectives on the occupation and ownership of land and speculates upon how the past intersects with the present situation. Laing frequently works in series, creating thematic bodies of work that are large in scale and scope and accumulatively form an ongoing narrative of events that have impacted cultural consciousness.
