Zoë Landau Konson is a London based artist who creates sculpture that is both commemorative and revealing.
Fascinated by familial narrative and cultural memory her work explores and documents a recurring set of themes and their potential effect; absence and desire, oppression and betrayal, loss and legacy, identity and shadowed voices from the past. Often drawing from the refugee background of her family, her work plays with the uncertainty and possibilities within each of us and the way we express that to the outside world.
Zoë’s sculpture is crocheted, stitched or woven and she is currently creating a body of work using hair and architectural structures. Her method of construction consists of making hundreds of multiples of the same form and then uniting them in a final assemblage.
Teeming with masses of assembled forms, both tactile and tempting; Zoë’s sculptures also conceal a darker side. It is this contradiction that she finds so compelling, driving her to challenge our perceptions through the use and combination of unconventional form and media.
