Nomenclature of the Anthropocene: Emily Parker

This exhibition results from experience linked to matter, fragments of an endless work. The materials that will identify the geological age termed the Anthropocene are the substances of Parker's art practice. Processed organic matter indexically marked by that vast pollutant - plastic. The making process leaves Parker's work open to unstable, unexpected, and irregular results that enable an investigation of these materials, capturing their hidden forces and relationship with the world. The nomenclature of the Anthropocene points toward the past and a future that is yet to come. It's a delicate yet poignant balance Parker plays, drawing meaning from the meaningless and beauty from waste
