Laurie Charles


Laurie Charles’ work comprises video art, painting, installation, textile and performance. Drawing upon theories like speculative realism or queer ecology, Charles is creating a sequel for her film Love of Matter (2016). Her new work continues to explore how organisms, communities and utopias are interconnected. Charles - together with colleagues and friends - questions the concept of ‘going back to nature’.
