Laura Duffy | Garden of Purity

Courtenay Place Light Boxes, Wellington

Garden of Purity considers how we read and ingest imagery, drawing links through history from art history to advertising.Duffy sees the works as being a layered conversation about Catholicism, advertising, abjection, and queerness.She uses edible materials as a starting point for the series of digitally manipulated photographs in the light boxes and online video works. The series intends to prompt questions about traditional notions of beauty and divinity by blurring the lines between repulsion and desire.
