Lara Rettondini’s work explores the tension in the individual between self and social interface along with the mechanisms of control that mediate between the two. She combines both conceptual and aesthetic rigour across a range of disciplines to investigate the systems that structure and determine social behaviour, and through the re-contextualization of familiar objects and situations, invites subtle shifts in meaning. These realignments suggest hidden possibilities and undermine some of the deep-rooted preconceptions that frame our relation to reality, while also questioning the viability of those frameworks.
