STUDIO 12 | LAITH MCGREGOR
For his Studio 12 project, Laith McGregor intended to highlight and play on the bridge between the studio and the Studio 12 Exhibition Space.
Laith Mcgregor works within a multi-disciplinary practice including drawing, painting, video and sculpture. His work documents the grey area between fiction and non fiction. He questions the ambiguity that exists in our peripheral subconscious, the state of constant flux that is neither here nor there. It is this perpetual in between state that forms the basis for his work. A Sisyphean task of continual questioning.
McGregor has exhibited widely throughout Australia and overseas, such as in 'Physical Video' at Gallery of Modern Art Queensland, 'New Psychedelia' The University of Queensland Art Museum (2011) and 'Freehand: Recent Australian Drawing' Heide Museum of Art, Melbourne (2010). In 2011 he received a Arts Victoria Arts Development Grant, Australia Council Barcelona Residency and the Art and Australia/Credit Suisse Private Banking Contemporary Art Award. His work is held in institutions including Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney, Museum of Old and New Art, National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art Queensland, University of Queensland Art Museum and Monash University Museum of Art.
