Sweet Heart Now Grown So Cold
An exhibition of major works by the Warsaw-based multidisciplinary artist, Laura Pawela, made over the last five years and unseen in the UK.

Still from E.O.D., 2011 Video
Specially selected to highlight themes of metamorphosis, this collection spans video, sculpture, photography and drawing and includes a new site-specific installation.
The works in Sweet Heart Now Grown So Cold are connected by motifs that have appeared over the course of her significant contribution to contemporary art. Shifts in materials present a view of Pawela’s practice as an elemental collage of states in continuous transformation. Wisps of smoke in the video Smoke (2008) seem to reappear as hair in Untitled (2009), as a pool of urine in Sketch for the Study of Urine on a Street (2009) or as aeroplane vapour trails in Otke Notive (2011).
