micro galerie (cologne, DE)
For her solo show at Micro Galerie, Laura Lot imagines the practice of seeking and unearthing visual footage (from lost family photos to forgotten anecdotes published in the press…) as a beachcombing stroll on the foreshore, where one bumps into objects that have lost their original use but carry a (forgotten) story with them.
These objects are the “jetsam”: what’s been thrown, lost, abandoned, buried… and to which is now given a new existence through collage compositions.
The artistic process is here to be seen as a search made of fortuitous encounters, where the leftovers of destruction have the precious role of being the starting point of a new ground for creation.
