See more about the artist

Carol Laidler is a multidisciplinary artist based in Bristol. Her practice explores the intersection of writing, sound and image with a focus on memory, perception and entanglement with the more-than-human.

She creates site specific installations that offer a space for contemplation. She is interested in the where and how writing is encountered; the context as part of the meaning. By weaving together ideas and words from and with others, the work seeks to highlight possibilities of knowledge within conversation and connection.

Recent projects include:

In your shell like, sound installation with Pat Jamieson, for Coastal Currents (2023), Bexhill-on-Sea;  Observation Station, Bexhill-on-Sea, (2022,2023); Conversation, with Kamina Walton, (2021-2023); In Free Fall, sculpture and sound installation, in collaboration with Huma Mulji, David Alesworth, Eilis Kirby, Sarah, Rhys, Centre of Gravity, Gardiner Haskins, Bristol (2020); (The Distance) Between Us, Canopy, Forest of Dean, (2020); Every Few Hours Someone Cries, sound installation; Glenside Hospital Museum, with alldaybreakfast (2020); Walking-Not-Walking, film and performance talk with Davina Kirkpatrick, selected for Flat Pack Film Festival, Birmingham (2020); Tide Turns, film (2018); | Bank | performance talk with Carolyn Black, both presented at Liquidscapes, Dartington Hall (2018); The Bulletins of Miscellaneous Information, sound installation with David Alesworth in Lawrence Garden, Lahore Biennial (2018); Soundings sound and sculptural installation, with alldaybreakfast and Edson Burton, St Mary Redcliffe church (2017/18).
