London Based Artist Laura Wilson Presents New Works at Siobhan Davies
Laura Wilson, "Quite a Stranger, Aren't You?".
LONDON.- London based artist Laura Wilson presents a number of new works which respond to the building and its history. Her work lies in investigating the everyday through various media and the exhibition features two live performances alongside drawings on glass, sculpture and video.

Performance art events:

• 19 January, 7pm and 8pm: Blind Building takes place in the tower block of the London College of Communication in Elephant and Castle, a few minutes walk from Siobhan Davies Studios. Viewers watch from street level a 15 minute choreographed performance of the raising and lowering of blinds within the building.

• 5 February, 7-8.30pm: Flaming Fuse at Siobhan Davies Studios. This performance piece involves the striking and extinguishing the contents of an entire box of matches in a darkened room. The sizzle of each match is amplified and the performer illuminated before discarding the match and starting again until all the matches have been used. After the performance, Laura Wilson will be in conversation with artist Jefford Horrigan from 7-8.30pm. Free entry but seats must be reserved by calling 020 7091 9650.

Laura Wilson presents a number of new works including: a film of Blind Building; Drawing on a Large Glass, a site-specific drawing with PVC tape and vinyl. And finally Quite a Stranger Aren’t You, a duet of identical rotating heaters silently moving from one side to the other in unison, almost appearing to be dancing with each other.

Laura Wilson was born in Belfast in 1983 and studied at Central Saint Martins in London. She has shown nationally and internationally in exhibitions including at Tate Britain, Liverpool Biennale, Concrete and Glass at the Nicholls and Clarke Building, the Ormeau Baths Gallery in Belfast, and at South London Gallery. She lives and works in London. Further information at

‘I am fascinated by the challenges and questions posed by the subversion of the everyday to reveal the hidden or the forgotten, and intrigued by the rich potential within situations where the studio or gallery space move into the public sphere and vice versa.’ – Laura Wilson
