Laurel Woodcock: Take Me Im Yours

Laurel Woodcock. operetta 1998 (production still, Paul Litherland). VHS video projection, steel frame, audio CD. Courtesy of the artist.
Sometimes described as "sentimental conceptualism," Woodcock's new media installations integrate technical effects with intellectual and emotional content. Take me, I'm yours includes five discrete components that function as a thematic whole. By means of VHS video and DVD projections, plus consumer-level equipment and unassuming props, the exhibition engages sight and sound, memory, taste and touch. The cumulative effect may well be a tease, a pretense of availability orchestrated through cinematic devices, pop psychology, the occult, and themes of love and mortality.
