Laura Duffy, Spawn, 2022
digital print on Epson enhanced matte 192gsm 450 x 800mm
edition of 3, series of 4
This series of 4 editions by Laura Duffy is created from her 2021 video, Spawn, commissioned by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) + CIRCUIT. Curator Serena Bentley notes that “Duffy mixes materials together like potions, encouraging audiences to consider texture through filmic spaces in which the natural and unnatural writhe upon one another—slipping, dripping, bubbling, congealing... The work reflects Duffy’s belief that materials are collaborative, complete with their own stories, histories and energies. The artist combines these materials to critique and shatter binary thinking of natural and unnatural as separate, instead embracing the complexity and blur of binaries.”
Laura Duffy is from Turanganui-a-Kiwa and has been living and working in Te Whanganui-a-Tara for the past decade. She works between video, sculpture, and installation. Duffy is interested in exploring queer pleasure or joy derived from failure, error, and disgust. Recent exhibitions include Spawn, ACMI, Melbourne, 2021; Maybe Someone is Starting to Bloom, Parasite, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2021; Candy-Coated, The Dowse Art Museum, Te Whanganui-a-Tara, 2021; DUIRVIUS (with Owen Connors), Blue Oyster Project Space, Ōtepoti, 2020; and Thinking about Thinking about the Future (with Aliyah Winter), Te Uru Waitākere Contemporary Gallery, Tāmaki Makaurau, 2020.
