Selected Works

Sam Laughlin

1–30 October

No. 13 The Regency Town House, The Drawing Room

Thurs–Sun 12:00–18:30

New works by Sam Laughlin are presented here for the first time. The main body of the exhibition - 'Slow Time' - is a reflection on natural forms: flora, fauna, landscapes and the quiet processes that happen within them. The work is an attempt to reach an understanding, which though informed by ideas from Geology and Ecology, is open to interpretation. The title denotes both the nature of the subject and Laughlin's approach to it: processes which take place slowly (often on geological timescales), and a slow way of looking at them.

Alongside this, Laughlin is presenting other works - including 'Nests' - a study of animal architecture, made in collaboration with renowned behavioural ecologist and author Prof. Nick Davies.
