Louise Oates series Notes on Hydraulic Fracturing: The Desolate North-East is include in the current exhibition a Handful of Dust: from the Cosmic to the Domestic curated by David Campany.
Louise Oates is a London based artist who works with photography and sculpture. Her practice deals with material processes and networks which play out across our globalised world, for example mineral extraction or systems of water, and engages with these subjects through a variety of photographic, chemical and material techniques. Her latest self published book Notes on Hydraulic Fracturing bring together an extensive research about land exploiting and artistic interventions. Combining these two aspects in a surprising natural way, Louise give us access to her way of thinking and acting in relation to contemporary issues.
