Laura Aldridge’s work moves freely between wall-based reliefs, sculptural installations and collage in two and three-dimensions. Her works use fabric, photographic imagery and found objects to create installations that the artist describes as expanded collage. Her work is often arranged upon tables, low plinths or across gallery walls to bring ‘things’ together so that they might coalesce as a whole.

Sculpture Placement Group
Sculpture Showroom is an adoption service for sculptural objects, seeking to match works of art with new guardians.
Sculpture Placement Group works with artists to identify sculptural works in long-term storage with no current future. Sculpture Showroom will bring sculptural joy into people’s daily lives, meanwhile testing a new model for circulating artworks, increasing access to art ownership and alleviating artists of the pressures of storage and space.
Let’s give work hidden in storage a new life!
