Born in Miri, Malaysia. Lives and works between Australia and the UK.
Laura Hindmarsh is a visual artist working across performance, text, photomedia and moving image. In each instance the work is an interrogation of the chosen medium, often pushing the mode of production and the body’s engagement in this process to a point of exhaustion or collapse. Working with processes of embodiment and repetition, Hindmarsh highlights and questions established hierarchies of representation.
Her film and video works have screened at prestigious international festivals such as the Edinburgh International Film Festival, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival and the Contact Festival of Experimental Film and Video, London. Recent exhibitions include Figuratively Speaking, CCP; Primavera 2017, MCA; Passages, Contemporary Art Tasmania; Finding Focus, PhotoAccess; Exhaust, Contemporary Art Tasmania; and ATAVAST, Standard Practice, New York.
