During the Constant Ecology residency
Amy Jane Parker
will be considering the maceration of micro-plastics by krill into nano-plastics, to elaborate on a range of theoretical ideas pertaining to permeation, toxicity and queer ecologies. Amy's interest and further research has been prompted by a process of siphoning krill fecal matter from the Australian Antarctic Division that has taken place over a number of years.
Amy Jane Parker (b.1990, Narrm/ Melbourne) is an artist currently living and working between the unceded lands of the Boon Wurrung, Wurundjeri and Palawa people. As a beneficiary of these lands, I pay my respects to elders, past present and emerging.
Through a fragmented, sculptural language that hinges upon both material and allegory, Amy Jane Parker’s work highlights the ways that bodies are imbricated in both material and immaterial ways. Her current research considers the repercussions of fictive self-containment, which sustains a denial of inter-dependency and supports extractive economies.
