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.
