Event Details

A Soft Introduction is Laura Edmunds’ most ambitious exhibition yet. Selected to develop this new body of work for Visual Arts Plymouth’s Plymouth Platform mentorship to support and nurture artistic talent within the city, Hannah Rose (of LOW PROFILE) has been mentor to Laura Edmunds through the mentorship programme.

A Soft Introduction considers slippages, things without edges and the transmission of residual affect through drawing, installation and sound; an attempt to capture that which cannot be held. A Soft Introduction sees Edmunds using drawing to capture a sense of energy within space, reflecting on the idea that we are impermanent.Through sound, shape-shifting boundaries are explored – becoming container and contained.

A Soft Introduction has a closing event on Sunday 24 September from 2 – 4pm. Free and open to all.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September

Laura Edmunds (b. 1989, Cardiff) is a Welsh artist currently based at KARST studios in Plymouth, UK. Laura is currently represented by TEN Gallery in Cardiff, Wales. A Soft Introduction has been supported by Arts Council England and Visual Arts Plymouth.
