Laura Magnusson – 2015 Churchill Artists’ Residency

Laura Magnusson is a Winnipeg-based multidisciplinary artist with a BFA Honours from the University of Manitoba. Her predominately sculptural work combines architectural and organic elements to create precarious narratives that investigate ideas of loss, memory, and worth.

Residency Project

During her stay at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre, Laura will produce written and visual content for an artist’s book which will examine her experiences in the region over the past five years. Through collating stories, journal excerpts, critical analysis, photographs, drawings, and ephemera, Laura will consider lingering uncertainties about her relationship to place and what it means to negotiate boundaries between natural and developed spaces.
