Liminal Gallery is delighted to announce their next exhibition ‘Little Lords’ by renowned artist Laura Ford. The exhibition will showcase a collection of sculptural and wall-based works which explore the boundaries between desire and imposition, inviting viewers into the realm of play and imagination.
Laura Ford's 'Little Lords' sculptures take centre stage, portraying three boy-like figures adorned in vibrant, parrot-inspired costumes. The figures exude a conspiratorial charisma, commanding attention with their playful yet enigmatic presence. While mimicking the stances of superheroes, their concealed identities add an air of tension, prompting viewers to ponder the question: who are they?
Ford's artistic practice, spanning various media, combines playful craftsmanship with acute social commentary. ‘Little Lords’ promises an immersive experience, where visitors can engage with the sculptures' intricate details and delve into the artist's exploration of identity, fantasy, and the human condition.
The artist's significant contributions to the art world are reflected in her inclusion in prestigious public collections, including Tate, The Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Government Art Collection. Laura Ford represented Wales in the 2005 Venice Biennale and has exhibited in solo and group shows internationally.
All are welcome to join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Little Lords’ on Saturday 2 March at Liminal Gallery’s Main Space, 5-8pm.
This exhibition forms a part of Power of Women Festival which takes place across Thanet throughout the month of March and celebrates women in the creative industries.
