Expanding the possibilities
of performance

Sorrel and Laura stand on two different dirt pathways in front of a smattering of trees, with their backs facing the camera. On the left, Sorrel wears a red hat, blue jacket, red backpack, blue jeans, and brown boots. On the right, Laura wears a blue hat, teal jacket, black backpack, navy pants, and brown shoes. Beside Laura, there is a wooden post with a green sign stating directions. In the distance, there is a lake surrounded by tall brown grass. Above them, the sky is light blue with no visible clouds.

Sorrel Muggridge & Laura Nanni are interdisciplinary artists who have been working with each other since summer 2006, often with an ocean between them—Sorrel in England, Laura in Canada. Their collaborative works deal with journeys, distance, and translation of space. 

Individually, their practices have always responded to preoccupations with human geography and site specificity. Collaboratively their works explore how people understand and connect with their surroundings; and how we can build and communicate a shared sense of place?

Sorrel and Laura  transform records of actions and experiences into installations that can be appreciated as maps, abstract forms, and narratives of the journeys. They also create artworks that connect audiences in separate locations sharing a journey at the same time. While moving through their different environments together, landscapes intertwine.
