On Art and its Ecologies: Artist Talk with Liz Larner
Liz Larner is among the most influential sculptors working today, with an idiosyncratic practice that defies definition but can be characterized by its insistent thoughtfulness and relentless experimentation. Working across style and materials, from ceramics and steel to cloth and even bacteria, Larner constantly employs new forms to investigate the histories, realities, and possibilities of sculpture. Her earliest work examined the aesthetics of decay through a series of works involving live cultures in petri dishes, which she then photographed. More recently, she has become increasingly attentive to the tenuous yet evocative realities of the Anthropocene age which we now inhabit, and her sculptures have explored the many personal, structural, and geologic ecologies which continually unmake and remake our world. Simultaneously attuned to the histories of art, Larner invites the viewer to renegotiate their perceptions of matter, space, and self.

Larner joins Hirshhorn associate curator Anne Reeve to discuss her current thinking, ongoing practice, and the artist’s role in facing our charged and changing times.
