Emilie Clark has inserted herself into the works and lives of Victorian women scientists and naturalists.
Treating her studio like a laboratory, she literally restages much of the research these women undertook. This accumulative process tends to turn the studio into an embodiment of each historical project she takes on. Transformation is one of the underlying connections across the projects—even before Emilie began working this way, her work had involved liminal states, things in the act of becoming, de-familiarizing and non-linear narratives, close observation and the questioning of categories. This investigative activity and her archival research and writing inform a practice that involves painting, drawing, installation and sculpture. The practices of these women and Emilie involve careful testing sustained empirical inquiry, structured interaction with daily life, and ultimately world building.
