ARTIST TALK AND GALLERY WALKTHROUGH | Aurora Robson: The Tide is High

Saturday, October 21, 2017
2:00PM
Room 309, Simons Center

Join us on Saturday, October 21, 2:00pm for an artist talk and gallery walkthrough with Aurora Robson. Learn more about her exhibition The Tide is High.

The Halsey Institute presents a site-specific installation by NY-based sculptor Aurora Robson. As an artist who explores ecological issues, she creates lively and intricate sculptures from plastic debris, transforming quotidian waste into aesthetic objects of beauty and reflection. Under her meticulous manipulation, the plastic materials she uses in her works take on an organic quality, thus connecting back to nature.  Many of her works take on forms that resemble the otherworldly organisms that exist on ocean floors; in this way, her work is further associated with the sea, which is often the ultimate repository for plastic waste. Her works reference a legacy of using found objects as media for sculpture, and by transforming everyday trash into works of art, her sculpture forces viewers to consider their own relationship with plastic materials and waste.
