CONSTRUCTS 3: Climb
Laura Anne Morgan
Ends 16 August 2008
Recent graduate Laura Anne Morgan explores a tree in the same way as one would with an historic monument; she builds scaffolding around them and erects a rigid formal system, as if these natural or built structures are in need of renovation. Nature and architecture seem to pose the same challenge, a need for structural support and reconstruction.
The resultant scaffold allows the artist to climb and physically redraw the shapes with childlike joy.
This installation is part of a series entitled CONSTRUCTS, a loose sequence of projects around the issue of created space.
