See the Special Sculpture Exhibit Featuring the Renowned Aurora Robson
Looking for a dash of creativity to brighten up your weekend plans? Then head to the Halsey Institute for its special presentation of a new body of work and site-specific installation by New York-based sculptor Aurora Robson. This groundbreaking artist has been invited to s create a large site-specific installation using plastic debris welded into new forms, making this exhibit an inspiring display of ingenuity you’ll love to see in person!
As an artist who explores ecological issues, Aurora Robson creates lively and intricate sculptures from disregarded plastic, transforming quotidian waste into aesthetic objects of beauty and reflection. Under her meticulous manipulation, the plastic materials she uses in her works take on an organic quality, and many of her works take on forms that resemble the otherworldly organisms that exist on ocean floors. In this way, her work is further associated with the sea, which is often the ultimate repository for plastic waste. Her works reference a legacy of using found objects as media for sculpture, and by transforming everyday trash into works of art, her sculptures invite viewers to consider their own relationship with plastic materials and waste. Her presentation at the Halsey Institute is a unique artistic event coming to Charleston, so be sure to experience this wonderful exhibition!
Community interaction is an important part of life, which is why Parks at Nexton Apartments in Summerville, South Carolina is urging you to join in the all of the excitement at this event!
