    Laurence Hegarty

    Profile

    Laurence Hegarty  

    Originally from London Laurence  Hegarty has lived in New York for more than two decades. Initially trained as an artist Hegarty's interests have wandered over the years leading him to pursue film studies and psychoanalysis  as partners in the conversation that shapes his studio practice.  Hegarty has trained as a psychoanalyst and he now maintains a private practice in New York City.  Though the two disciplines –studio art and psychoanalysis– are not integrated in any way, it is the overlaps and collisions between them that shape Hegarty's  art making.  Often staged as parades or processions his installations employ found objects jostling for space alongside figures hoisting flags, batteries of rubber cameras, weapons, carriages and sundry domestic objects. Frequently used are photographs and fragments of writing plundered from poems, psychoanalytical texts, European art cinema, and liquor commercials. The general tone is theatrical, the loose organizing principle narrative while the references trade in allusions to popular culture, political turmoil, clinical horror and drunken reverie.  

    Hegarty is also a writer, curator and teacher.
