Laura Yuile is an artist based in Glasgow. Yuile graduated from the Painting and Printmaking course at the Glasgow School of Art in 2008, and was a founding member of studio and gallery complex Stour Space in East London, where she was a resident from 2009-2010.
Yuile has exhibited both nationally and internationally, with exhibitions including Floor Plan, Bei Gao, Beijing; How to win when you love to lose, The Duchy, Glasgow; Rhizomatic, Departure Gallery, London; By Product, Nettie Horn, London; and Half an hour shouldn’t be this long, Intermedia, Glasgow.
Recent projects include residencies with the Red Gate Gallery, and Art Channel, in Beijing; and ?? - a collaborative project with artist Jocelyn McGregor that included a series of site-specific exhibitions and events held at a demolished village on the outskirts of Beijing.
Yuile’s work examines notions of space, the changing movement of bodies through mental and physical spaces, and the spectacle as obstacle. With an interest in how material excess shapes meaning, order and the everyday rituals in our lives; Yuile’s installations combine assemblages and arrangements of commercially manufactured objects, with sculpture, collage, video, photography and sound. Labour intensive methods of working are often employed in the studio as a deliberate fetishization of labor; with the performative approach Yuile takes in installing work raising questions about value and contemporary artistic labour.
Forthcoming exhibitions include Rehearsed Reactions, The Briggait, Glasgow; and Pop Up Povera, Playground, London.
