Artist Talk with Aurora Robson
Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston hosts an artist talk and gallery walk through with SEA CHANGE artist Aurora Robson October 21 in conjunction with the site-specific installation. As an artist who explores ecological issues, Robson creates lively & intricate sculptures from plastic debris, transforming quotidian waste into aesthetic objects of beauty & 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.
