Artist Talk: Emily Nachison
Through sculptural objects and installation, Emily Nachison investigates the use of story and symbols to mythologize natural phenomena. Within her work, mythology, scientific history and New-Age idealism become starting points for an investigation into the creation of meaning and the formation of knowledge. Nachison’s material choices, which include glass and fiber, are governed by each material’s cultural history and its ability to impart meaning.
Emily will be talking about Odilon Redon, Oannes et le Sphinx.
