This sculpture is a metaphoric lamp made by someone on the run. With little at hand other than a tin can and a bit of rope this piece was made to harness light to guide one home.

About the Artist:
Emma Rossoff's work focuses on the destabilizing of the home environment. She builds sculptures, inspired by forms of household interiors (furniture, textiles, and domestic appliances), which she takes apart and reforms, pushing them to the edge of collapse. Rossoff is a sculptor born in New York City who currently lives and works in Austin, Texas. She received a BA in Studio Art and Art History from Columbia University in 2016 and is an MFA candidate in Sculpture and Extended Media at University of Texas, Austin (2022). She attended a residency at Vermont Studio Center (2019), and has been included in group exhibitions in New York City including How do I Measure my Gratitude? at the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2021), Lamp Show at Head Hi (2019), Architecture of Care at Project ART:Space (2017), Stop Waxing Here’s the Truth at the LeRoy Neiman Gallery (2016).
