Louiseann King: solis

Louiseann King is a sculptor/installation artist and academic based in Eganstown, a physical and historical landscape which is highly charged, complex and capable of subtle and dramatic change. She is a maker and a collector of time and place; her practice is one where she works with nuance, subtlety, the liminal, the forgotten and the lost. She collects, salvages, collates, regroups, juxtaposes and re-renders, creating works which cross boundaries of time and place.
King is an oddity and, at times, a curiosity: a woman artist working in bronze in a field dominated by men, with a practice which is inherently feminine and ‘other’. In her practice, bronze is both inherently monumental and heroic, and also deeply seductive and sensual in its potential to enable transformation.
In solis, King considers the way the Gallery collection is displayed, the spaces it occupies and how this generates meaning and context. solis features new sculptural installation works/interventions and includes a collaboration with sound artist Philip Samartzis which uses local eco-acoustic recordings and the particular acoustics of the Crouch Gallery.
