Laura Angell’s work/obsession/raison d'etre is manifested via multidisciplinary installations using images and handmade objects (largely textile) to tell an intended narrative. Her work focuses on failure, status, success, and anxiety; exploring society’s psychological concerns and examining subject matter we may not want to talk about; secrets, lies, shame and fear. Describing herself as an emotional flasher, the essence of her work is the juxtaposition of darkness and humour she employs to navigate and dissect these emotive heavyweights.
