Recording Artist Talk | Plant Your Seeds of Hope | Heske ten Cate en Laurie Cluitmans in conversation with Emma Talbot
On a cold and windy Sunday morning in January, around fifty people are gathered in the bright gallery building of Galerie Onrust in Amsterdam. Within the high-ceiling space of the gallery, the exhibition Spaceship Earth (Plant Your Seeds of Hope) by Emma Talbot is on display. Various works from Talbot's 21st Century Herbal series are included; large paintings on silk that float freely and lightly in the space. In addition, the walls are adorned with small framed drawings featuring cyclical line patterns and traveling figures, created on handmade paper. It also includes a sculpture resembling a branch, made from 3D-printed yarn. The exhibition is the center stage for a conversation between Emma Talbot and curators Heske ten Cate and Laurie Cluitmans, which takes place in front of one of the the big herbals by Talbot depicting the magical powers of rosemary and sage.
