Laresa Kosloff will present New Futures™, which brings together two darkly humorous video artworks assembled and edited entirely from corporate video stock footage sourced on the internet, each exploring themes of duplicity, neoliberalism and the climate crisis. Laresa Kosloff makes performative videos, Super 8 films, hand drawn animations, sculpture, installations and live performance works. Her practice examines various representational strategies, each one linked by an interest in the body and its agency within the everyday.
