Biography

Press

Laurence Kavanagh was born in 1973 in Liverpool. He lives and works in London.

His work offers an open structure whereby the viewer encounters the work and objects that are often almost shadows of themselves; spectral representations of the physical object completed through memory. Working in a range of materials from paper, resin, paint, graphite and print, the works often create the illusion of precarious or transient form.

Kavanagh has exhibited widely, including Temple Bar, Dublin in 2012 and Irish Museum of Modern Art in 2009. In 2008 the Lonely House project was purchased by the Arts Council Collection, and toured the UK as part of the Transmitter/Receiver exhibition. In 2011 he was recipient of the Mostyn Open prize. In 2012 he collaborated with four choreographers, as concept director, artist and designer on Jealousy, a project based on Robbe-Grillet’s novel at the Print Room Theatre, London.

Residencies include the British School in Rome, 2006; Irish Museum of Modern Art, 2009; Victoria and Albert Museum, 2010. He has also curated several exhibitions over the past decade. Laurence Kavanagh has been recently appointed as Warwick Stafford Research Fellow, for a year long research fellowship based at Baltic 39 (Baltic/Northumbria University) in Newcastle-upon-Tyne (2015).
