Laura Daly creates site specific and site related artworks that range significantly in scale. Often rooted in prolonged periods of in-depth research, she uncovers concealed and implied narratives where history, memory, myth and story fuse together. Using a variety of media, including sound, drawings, mapping, video and material objects, her immersive artworks generate a haunted exposition of our surroundings and capture a particular kind of longing (known as saudade in Portuguese and hiraeth in Welsh). She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Winner of The Engine Room International Sound Art Competition and New Contemporaries. MA: Central St Martins, University of the Arts London. BA: The Slade School of Art, University College London.
