LAITH MCGREGOR: OHNE TITEL (THEM LISTLESS FOLK FROM APOCRYPHAL)

EXHIBITION IMAGES

Ohne Titel (Them listless folk from Apocryphal) sits within a poetic sphere. With ghosts and lost souls wandering through the works, McGregor is exploring an in-between state, a place that does not exist, a grey area of the unknown.

 

In this body of work McGregor is chasing the ghost 'Waterface' - an imaginary friend from his childhood that has appeared throughout his practice as an elusive figure. “I am still trying to reflect on and conjure this figure from my past. I am curious why the figure presented itself to me, perhaps as future self, a family member of the past or simply an apparition with changing masculine identities. But the question was always why? ”

In McGregor's distinctive style, he engages with a language of magical realism, blending aspects of photorealism with memory, literature, art history, popular culture and the imagination. This body of work drifts in and out of focus, a psychedelic cascade of shapes and forms that create a Horror Vaccui in the gallery space.
