details from the Blind Courier exhibition
Lauren Kasmer's Flourish From Fire, as featured in the Blind Courier exhibition, is an installation composed of two poetic non-narrative videos surrounded by domestic furnishings whose photographic imagery is sourced from a home fire. The arrangement is an inviting space, a reinterpretation of shelter, one that proposes that what can be seen as personal tragedy could instead welcome contemplation and reflection of universal themes.
