In PlushSpace Laura Marsh reacts to a narrow corridor by activating the vitrine as a participatory site for passage. The experience of walking in a glass enclosure measuring 40 feet long and 2 feet wide makes one aware of one’s own verticality. PlushSpace layers the space with 50 flags spelling out an unfolding narrative above, aquatic lighting bouncing off glass, and 100 fabric balls to interact with at your feet.
PlushSpace is an immersive installation and incubator for viewers to engage with sewn forms, reinterpret space, and discuss issues within the arts while being active participants. Flags bear text and symbols that speak about artist and curator roles, fem symbolism, and national identities. As an installation artist with a tactile sensibility and curatorial practice, Marsh produces environments that are approachable and inclusive. Her investment in viewer participation and material dialogue is a statement that the tactile is conceptually layered and relational.
