Laura Wilson (b.1983, Belfast, N. Ireland) is an artist based in London. ¬†Wilson investigates ¬†the forces of representation that determine our understanding of the material world. Her practice is wide-ranging, working across performance, sculpture, video and lectures. Negotiation is a necessary strategy in the production of her work, which often involves collaborations or exchanges with specialists, enacting the creation or displacement of materials and ideas. Wilson has developed a specific interest in how methods for hand-making bread are passed from generation to generation, and how this process provides a counterpoint to the increasing pace of mechanical production and technologies used today. Whilst at Delfina Foundation, Wilson developed Trained on Veda, an exploration of Veda Bread, a dark brown malt loaf produced in Northern Ireland, UK.
