Laura F. Gibellini
Laura F. Gibellini is a visual artist and theorist whose work grapples with the notion of place and what it means to inhabit the world. In particular she is concerned with how specific places appear in the interstice between ideal and factual gestures, in the gap between conceptualization and practice. In her work, she pays particular attention to the conditions in which, at a given moment, particular artworks emerge and manifest themselves. This places emphasis in the (thinking) process while the artwork would appear as a result or a residue of such development. She uses a variety of media in particular drawing, collage, photography, and video, and, at times, she produces site-specific installations. Laura is a faculty member of the MFA in Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
