Phrasal Breaches

Amy Jane Parker


Opening 05.09.18 6-8pm
Artist Talks 27.09.18 6-7pm

eccentric attempts
to move your core
out of yourself
into something else
into others
and there
in horror
in cruelty
orgy
offering
need
sorrow
fury
poverty
blindness
stupidity

This body of sculpture materialises ongoing and conflicting conceptions of empathy, or rather, the unlikely figure of the empath - as promise, weapon, or tool of evasion.

 

Biography

Amy Jane Parker (b.1990, Narrm/ Melbourne) is an artist currently living on the unceded lands of the Palawa people in nipaluna/ Hobart. Her sculptural practice considers how affective energies are passed between and indexed within earthly matter. Her work currently reflects upon the idea of empathy as entanglement, articulated through a fragmented language hinged upon allegory and material.

Recent and only solo exhibitions include elslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelslelse (running else) at Punk Café (2017) and Blank Verse at TCB Art inc. (2017).  In 2016 Amy exhibited collaboratively with Ellen Fairbairn and Amber Wright presenting a gift means a gap between two people, Bus Projects and You’ve been here before at Visual Bulk. Amy has attended residency programs at Frontyard Projects (2017) and at Textílsetur Íslands, Blönduós, Iceland (2013).
