Gathering at Kogo Auction on June 5th 2021

For the auction, Laura Põld donated three of her drawings on paper from the series “In a Silent Room: Some Things That Live Among Us” (2021). These works were exhibited in the exhibition “Shedding Skin” at Gallery Vaal together with her site-specific installation and Piret Karro’s texts. In the show, a particular focus was set on the practical issues of living arrangements and cohabitation constellations as well as the survival strategies of cultural workers.

About the artist

Laura Põld (1984) continuously explores fundamental human (and animal) needs, including community, safety and shelter. She started making paintings and installations referring to a sense of home and living abroad in the 2010s. In her latest work, she focuses on her choice of materials and their historical context, implementing traditional handiwork and building techniques like (primitive) ceramics and embroidery, which interest her as preservation of memory and experience. In her oeuvre, Põld has been engaged in creating a sense of place, combining and juxtaposing materially sensitive objects, narrative elements and memorabilia within the qualities of specific exhibition space. Her often large-scale constructions or installations either take over or interfere with the allocated exhibition venue and/or its context.
