Love/Work (with Laura Yuile)

Alex Frost and Laura Yuile for Artlicks Weekend
September 2017

“Occupying both the indoor and outdoor space of this living and working environment, the works cohabit with domestic objects and explore the multiple contradictions we live on a daily basis from the comfort of home. These contradictions are channelled through both the specific context of the Fire Station as well as the wider context of the city which includes the abrupt relationship between the interior of the building and the polluted aggression of the road outside; the gigantic warehouses of Amazon and Sainsbury’s that overlook this residential complex for artists; and the ways in which individuals access notions of community or connectivity from the private intimacy of the domestic sphere.”
