Laura Wilson is interested in how history is carried and evolves through everyday materials and craftsmanship. She works with specialists to develop sculptural and performative works that amplify the relationship between materiality, memory and tacit knowledge.
Laura premiered To The Wind’s Teeth at our recent Llwyn Celyn open days, inspired by the heritage of our Threshing Barn. During November 2021, together with films of Laura’s other performances, it is being screened online by Johannesburg-based arts organisation POOL.
In her past work, ‘Folds’, Laura worked with stone masons Nancy Peskett and Lily Marsh to translate and carve the texture and folds of dough to a large lump of Bath Stone.
