Laura Delaney is an artist.

As part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival, Melbourne-based visual artist Laura Delaney has installed a site-specific work, I’m Fine, at Orygen Youth Health – a centre that provides mental health assessment and treatment services for young adults. Using content from medication instructions, health-related brochures and collective experiences of mental illness, I’m Fine addresses what it means to function in a society that makes little allowance for illness. Delaney’s work has shifted over the past four years, between painting, installation, sculpture and collage, while her core focus has remained steadfast in a dark celebration of human limit.
