Laura Besancon (b:1993, Malta) is based between UK and Malta.
During her undergraduate degree in Communications and Psychology at the University of Malta, Laura began to turn towards a fine art approach in researching her fields of studies.
In 2017 she moved to London to pursue an MA degree at the Royal College of Art where she developed a multifaceted practice which incorporates photography, moving image, sound, mixed media and collaborative projects.
Central to Laura’s practice are notions of play, connectivity and place in the context of the city, explored through the construction of playful interventions. Her research and practice aims at rethinking urbanism and exploring ideas around isolation and alienation, community and action.
She is also interested in turning things around through appropriation, reconfiguration, shifting perspectives and playful action with the city’s infrastructure. Her work also explores notions of interior and exterior and the in-between, breaking away from dual concepts of public/ private.
Recent works include “Alone, Together” (2018- ongoing) where residents of a tower block are invited to participate in a work. She was a finalist for the 2019 MTV RE:DEFINE Award by the Goss-Michael Foundation.
