Gabby Laurent - Shrieking Wailing Sobbing

Fri-Sun: 11-5pm

Seen Fifteen is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of new work by London-based artist Gabby Laurent, opening for the 7th edition of Peckham 24 festival of contemporary photography across the weekend of 12th-14th May 2023.

As part of the festival programme curated on the theme of BODY LANGUAGE, Laurent will present a new series titled, Shrieking Wailing Sobbing, inspired by the essay, The Gender of Sound, by Anne Carson.

Shrieking Wailing Sobbing continues Gabby Laurent’s ongoing exploration of what it means to be a woman in the world. Her interdisciplinary practice sits at the intersection of photography and performance, and reflects on female experience through works that often blend darkness with humour. Where past series have centred her own body as the mode of expression, in this new work Laurent directs and choreographs actresses to perform for her camera.
