Join Emily Parsons-Lord, finalist in the churchie emerging art prize 2020, in conversation with exhibition curator Talia Smith, exploring the themes and ideas embedded within her practice.

Emily Parsons-Lord’s practice is concerned with air and explosions. Recent work has recreated the air from past eras in Earth’s evolution, recreated starlight in coloured smoke, and experimented with pheromones, aerogel, and explosions. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and participated in Primavera (2016), the NSW Visual Arts Fellowship (2017), Liveworks (2017), Bristol Biennial: In Other Worlds, (2016), John Fries Award (2018), A BROKEN LINK, Central St Martin’s, London (2017), Stuttgart Film Winter Festival for Expanded Media, Firstdraft, and Vitalstatistix, amongst others.
