Emily Nachison, Collage



Through sculptural objects and installation, artist Emily Nachison investigates the use of story, symbols, and materiality to mythologize natural phenomena, escapism, and the desire for secret knowledge. In the summers of 2014 and 2015, Bullseye Projects invited her to participate in residencies at North Lands Creative Glass in Lybster, Scotland. Working in response to the unique landscape and architecture of Caithness, Scotland, Nachison created a series of projects for the Byre, a new Bullseye Projects exhibition space in Latheronwheel, Scotland. Nachison will discuss her recent residencies and exhibition.

Check out the video below and be sure to join us on May 10 to hear more about her practice and experiences.

The Library Salon Series is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Thank you to our sponsors: Minnesota State Arts Board, Northeast Bank, and Brake Bread.
