ROSEMARY LAING: THE APPROACH

 
The title leak describes the leakage between things including time: past, present, future. 

For her series leak, Rosemary Laing built an oversized domestic timber house frame on a sheep farm in the Cooma-Monaro district of New South Wales. The frame appears to have somehow fallen upside-down on a mound of gum trees in a paddock, a kind of visual collision between the idea of a pastoral idyllic past and present-day urban infection.
 
The title leak describes the leakage between things including time: past, present, future; the way images speak to one thing and another, with each impacting on the other; how the past landscape pastoral idyll can be crossed with a present very broadly put suburban-to-global leakage; and how actions have the potential  to leak outside of an act itself – or in a way that everything leaks everywhere.
