Rosemary Laing Biography

Rosemary Laing is an Australian artist known for her photo-based work that is cinematic in vision and created with real-time performance and physical installation as opposed to digital manipulation. In culturally and historically resonant locations across Australia, Laing meticulously stages interventions. Her work is informed by post-colonial perspectives on the occupation and ownership of land and speculates upon how the past intersects with the present situation. Laing frequently works in series, creating thematic bodies of work that are large in scale and scope and accumulatively form an ongoing narrative of events that have impacted cultural consciousness.
