Carol Laidler, Tide Turns (2018)

Studio 79

Carol Laidler explores ideas surrounding narrative, memory, and perception. She is interested in the connection between things, in examining and highlighting the conflicting narratives that emerge within the history of a place or archival collection. She is curious about how the meaning of these narratives change in relation to context and to cultural experience.

Her work takes the form of site-specific installations, and involves sound, found objects, moving image and/or performance. She uses writing, photography and walking as part of the process.

She is a member of alldaybreakfast, an artist collective based in Bristol working within the area of situated art.
