about this work
"The process began as a study on notation (drawings as texts, as Laura terms them). Flexible Gold unfolds as a study on architectural constructions, or on the architecture of power.The series renders a sort of map to the "institution of power". The artist draws what she calls architectural interventions with a golden pen on reproductions of iconic paintings cut out from exhibition and collection catalogs. Flexible Gold grants depth to this almost hallucinogenic confluence of power: the politics of sponsoring, of portraiture, of painting, of publishing and of gold mining, selling and trafficking.”
