Artist talk and Exhibition: Sarah Nance
January 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Sarah Nance is an interdisciplinary artist based in installation and fiber. She explores a layered perception of place through the entanglements of geologic processes and human experience. In her current site-responsive work, she creates shrouds for “archived” landscapes—environments, such as former inland seas, that are now observable only through fossil records, artifacts, or recorded data. The shrouds vary from handworked textiles to experimental vocal performances, becoming surface layers that point to complex records of deep time within the geo-anthropic landscape.
Nance is currently Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Art at SMU in Dallas, TX. She has previously held professorships in Fibres & Material Practices at Concordia University (Montréal, QC) and Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, VA). Nance participated in consecutive artist residencies in Reykjavík and Skagaströnd, Iceland in 2013; much of her research continues to be based in Iceland and northern coastal regions of Canada and the US.
