Musée Magazine features my installation “Anatomy of Desire” at Theaterlab NYC

Last week, Theaterlab and French POV presented “Anatomy of Desire”, a site-specific installation where Laval transforms the space into fragments incorporating images from the project of the same name. The resulting effect is reminiscent of an augmented 3-D pixelated image where the viewer finds herself immersed into the fragmented landscape of the artist’s memory.

“Radical Color” exhibition at Newspace Center for Photography

Untitled #18 from my new series Heterotopia is included in the upcoming exhibition “Radical Color”, curated by Jon Feinstein, Co-Founder and Curatorial Director of Humble Arts Foundation.

Heterotopia-18

With the recent history of color photography as a reference point, this exhibition comprises works from a current generation of color photographers. While color pioneers like Shore may have used it as a means of achieving a purely descriptive truth, how does today’s post-digital, post-internet generation push its boundaries and use color with new intents? How are photographers using color-specific, digital tools to innovate, go beyond and reassess the idea of description?

Feature in Cultured Magazine

Cultured Magazine publishes a profile on me in their new issue, ahead of Art Basel Miami Beach.

In the feature Tracy Zwick writes about my latest project Heterotopia: “The new photographs evince a pop art sensibility, with landscapes abstracted, viewed from unusual angles and rendered in psychedelic hues. (…)There’s still something liquid in these landscapes. Laval expertly maintains continuity in her evolving aesthetic while simultaneously broadening it.”
