Laura Clarke

Laura Clarke has always been interested in the transgressive relationship between the animal and the human. She believes that the transformation that takes place when the human element is combined with the animal, is one of the most grotesque forms.

"I research closely into psychoanalytic theories revolving around the origins of desire, sexuality and power. Exploring stereotypes, gender roles, the uncanny, the macabre, category confusion, bestiality and hybridities that threaten our understanding of the world."

Clarke works with theatrical imagery that has erotic and fantastical overtones; surreal and ambiguous in their strangeness.
