A new decade of contemporary sculpture

Laura Buckley

Laura Buckley, new contemporary sculpture

Video, installation or sculpture? While Irish artist Laura Buckley's work encompasses all three disciplines, one of the most exciting aspects of her practice is a sculptural exploration of video - or, to be more accurate, the video projection and its interaction with surface and space.

Buckley's films (which in themselves are captivating) operate not only as narrative, but as materials and abstractions; light sources that can be bounced off reflective surfaces, projected onto rotating forms or made to bend, warp or refract.

As Buckley herself says, "My works are often semi-performative... in a multi-layered referential conversation between component materials, I use the devices of kinetic sculptural installation and video projection to question art and illusion, reality and perception."
