Introduction to the practice
Laura Dubourjal (1994) is a French visual artist and fashion designer who uses auto- fictional choreographies as a layout for creating interactive audio-visual and spatial installations.
She attended the Audio-visual department (VAV) at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (2018) and is currently participating in the Art Praxis programme at Dutch Art Institute (2020-2022).
Dubourjal’s practice intersects between exploring the paradigm of the non-territorial autonomy, and fabricated role-plays of non-binary identity representations. Her artistic interest diverges from eco-feminism and green-performativity, re-imaging archetypes of gender socialization, to exploring dialectics of the inner feminine monologue and its translatable political value. She often draws references from classical theatre techniques by excavating fragments and examples of emotional memory, behavioural landscapes and visual fabulations. Dubourjal’s practice is situated between interdisciplinary research as cross-media experimentations, pushing boundaries of design, performativity and visual narratives. With divergent media play, Laura’s work involves viewers in a dialogue on the transgressive nature of the identificational protocols.
Dubourjal’s work has been exhibited in venues and events such as Oude Kerk, Amsterdam Fashion Week, Eight Cubic Meters Gallery, Kunstcapel Amsterdam, and KunstRAI Art Fair.
She is currently based between Amsterdam and Paris.
