Laura Frare is an experimental filmmaker, and a self taught multi-instrumentalist, playing a variety of electronic and digital instruments, making audio field recordings, loops, and samples. Employing the “exquisite corpse” method, much like a collagist, she loves participating in collaborative projects with other artists.
Laura Frare and Mary Kathryn Jablonski have known each other for many years as artists; having met while Mary Kathryn was a gallerist, exhibiting Laura’s paintings. They became reacquainted recently at an exhibition where Mary Kathryn saw Laura’s film works, and immediately upon viewing them Mary Kathryn invited Laura to collaborate with her. In retrospect, the collaboration seemed imminent, as Laura’s artwork and filmmaking is lyrical and Mary Kathryn’s poems are based in her artistic world. The creative process flows naturally and is richly rewarding, as the results reveal surprises never possible to achieve in working alone.
