Laura Ní Fhlaibhín combines myth, personal recollection and oral histories through sculptural elements and writing. Her work often draws upon modes of care – of self and others, humans and animals, objects and materials.

Recent exhibitions have included Caol Áit, Burren College of Art, Ireland, 2019; Deptford X, London, 2018; Tulca Festival of Visual Arts, Galway, 2018; Water jets were used on the four corners of the building, Newington Art Space, London, 2018; a speech that showed the chair in the middle, Enclave, London, 2018; Dodecagon, Space Union, Seoul, 2017; Lamellae, The Lab, Dublin, 2016. She is the current recipient of Goldsmiths MFA Graduate Almacantar Studio Bursary Award, and Burren College of Art Emerging Irish Artist Residency award.

The marvel of charging with hoisted flags

On steel points

They travel across a mirrored landscape

Of exhumed shards that refract and tell.
