Artist Talk: Emily Parsons-Lord
Join us Friday 23 June 2023 from 4.30PM as we learn more about the experiments, exhibitions and creations our Artists in Residence are working on during their visit to Canberra Glassworks.
This artist talk will be held at Canberra Glassworks and there will be an opportunity to chat with the glass community in the last half hour after the talk. Everyone is welcome and there are absolutely no silly questions. We are all here to learn.
Previously based in Warrane (Sydney), Emily Parsons-Lord is an emerging visual and performance artist based in Naarm (Melbourne). Their practice is concerned with air and explosions, materials of the climate crisis that speak to both the invisibility and the spectacle of collapse.
"Glass and the process of making glass has an affinity with my practice with air and explosions. Glass can form at the impact site of meteorites, bombs, or volcanoes, recording moments of explosive states of transition, extreme intensity. The application of heat can reconfigure simple elements, such as silicon, into intricate and delicate objects that record the process of their making."
