Laura Yuile creates installations of object and video-based works that speak to multiple senses and are sometimes activated by performance. Her work explores the contemporary domestic and the urban landscape through the intimate (or public) matters of family or living together; personal care and household maintenance; wellness and well-being; and the effects of globalization upon living space. Propelled by narrative, installations probe issues of social discomfort and our cultural obsession with cleanliness; the methods through which society sanitizes women; and our desire for quick-fix methods of self-help and self-care. Issues of domestic and urban space and infrastructure are explored through the body as a primary, sensual site.  Laura has exhibited and screened internationally at venues including Apexart (New York); Blackwood Gallery (Toronto); Tate Britain (London); Mauve (Vienna); t-space (Milan); Recent Activity (Birmingham); Collective (Edinburgh); and undertaken residencies with Temporary Art Platform (Beirut), IOAM (Beijing) and The White Building (London).
