Laura Gannon (b 1972, Galway) lives and works in London. Working across a wide span of media, from film and installation to painting and sculpture, her films frequently feature modernist interiors that hint at a disquieting narrative around a seen or imagined female protagonist. A corporeal quality distinguishes her recent large metallic-painted panels which Gannon subjects to manoeuvres that pertain as much to dress-making as to sculpture – cutting, folding, and cinching. Although abstract in appearance, her works on linen reference the buildings and furniture of female designers including Eileen Gray and Lina Bo Bardi. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at VISUAL, Carlow, Ireland (2019-2020), Kate MacGarry, London (2018) and Espace Croisé, Centre d’Art Contemporain, Roubaix (2016).
