Laura Robertson: Stella’s Ground Clouds
Sat 25 Nov 2023 - Sun 04 Feb 2024
Devon-based artist Laura Robertson adds a new iteration of her print series Stella’s Ground Clouds to the evolving artists’ paste-up space at Exeter Phoenix.
In this series Robertson photographs paper pulp sculptures in the studio and collages them over a deep blue background. Titled to incorporate the ground, the clouds and the interstellar, Stella’s Ground Clouds floats between these horizons like a watery galaxy.
Examining what it means to be a body in an unstable world and how this might be responded to through alternate cosmologies, Laura Robertson uses installation, sculpture and events as a means of embracing the incomprehensible and staging alternatives outside popular paradigms.
This project appears as part of Exeter Phoenix’s Platform series, which offers artists based in the South West region opportunities to test out ideas, new work and recent developments in their practice.
