Laura Aldridge works with a broad range of media; photography, textiles,
ceramics and glass are all incorporated into a sculptural practice that she
describes as an expanded form of collage. Aldridge’s installations explore
the double-bind of subjectivity and objectivity, making versus experiencing, viewing versus participating. Her most recent installations emphasise display and presentation, exploring her own intuitive response to material and physicality. Her sculptures invite an impulsive response
that is interrupted by the barrier of not being able to physically engage
with the work itself. At this intersection Aldridge allows the intuitive and
the sensory to unfold.
