Laura de Moxom is a mixed media alt photo artist and activist obsessed by melancholy, the passing of time, sweet sadness and the fragile beauty of existence. She searches tirelessly through her past, and the past of others, through second hand stores, forgotten objects and memories to tell stories. She explores memory; its attachment to objects and the materiality of photographs, using a visual language of historic alternative photographic techniques, image transfer, assemblage and paint.
She advocates for change through her practice, creating beautiful protest. She is passionate about intersectional climate justice and frequently performs with the Red Brigade as part of Extinction Rebellion demonstrations. Alongside her arts practice, she works as a cultural manager facilitating community-led arts projects that have tangible public facing outcomes through a process of co-creation. Her practice involves facilitating discussions around political issues through the arts in community settings with children, families and adults from a range of backgrounds.
Inspired by her activism she is currently exploring sustainability in relation to her practice, thinking about environmentally friendly materials and processes.
