Rosemary Laing is a highly regarded photo media artist. Laing has presented solo exhibitions at several museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Kunsthallen Brandts Klædefabrik, Odense, Denmark; Domus Artium 2002, Salamanca, Spain; First Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, USA; and National Museum of Art, Osaka, Japan.
Since the early 1990s she has presented work in numerous curated museum exhibitions worldwide, and has participated in various biennials, including the Biennale of Sydney (2008), Venice Biennale (2007), Busan Biennale (2004), and
Istanbul Biennial (1995).
Her art work is primarily photographic but she does work with performance, painting and videos challenging our thoughts with politically charged elements in her images. Her photography is recognised internationally and consists of dramatic panoramic vistas throughout Australia that have historical and cultural importance. The final images have been produced using meticulously staged elements and physical installations to produce dramatic hyper-real images.
The latest exhibition of work will be your opportunity to see her unseen series titled effort & rush. Laing will also cover more than a decade of her work including one dozen unnatural disasters in the Australian landscape (2003) and a dozen useless actions for grieving blondes (2009).
Come and join the journey of Rosemary Laing's on-going engagement with historical and social landscapes and her interpretations of national and individual identity in relation to contemporary cultural issues.
