Laresa Kosloff’s work incorporates a range of approaches to making including Super 8 film, choreographed video works, hand drawn animation, installation, drawing and performance. Recent artworks explore the figure in relation to form; slapstick meets high-end abstraction. Kosloff is interested in how movement, gesture and abstraction translate into significance. Central interests include the body in relation to systems aspiring to purity, including abstraction, geometry, architecture, sport and the trained body.
Kosloff has participated in a number of group exhibitions including Last Ride in a Hot Air Balloon, The 4th Auckland Triennial (2010); In Which the Wind is also a Protagonist, La générale, Sèvres, France (2010); Fully Booked, Hotel Beethoven, Bonn, Germany (2009); Still Vast Reserves, Magazinno D’Arte Moderna, Rome (2009); Ecstatic City Multiplex Program, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2008); U-Turn, Glendale Art College, Los Angeles (2007), New ’06, A.C.C.A, Melbourne (2006); Truth Universally Acknowledged, A.C.C.A, Melbourne (2005); Plasticine Park, Melbourne International Arts Festival, A.C.M.I (2003); Multi Media Art Asia Pacific, Beijing, China (2002), and (the world may be) Fantastic, 13th Biennale of Sydney, Art Gallery of NSW, (2002).
