Louise Paramor: Emporium

Sculptural artist Louise Paramor has spent her artistic career pushing the boundaries of her practice by re-appropriating found domestic and industrial objects as her primary material source. Over the course of two decades Paramor has achieved considerable recognition for transforming these discarded objects into distinctive assemblage sculptures, as well as figurative and abstract collages and transient public space installations.

Glen Eira City Council Gallery is housing an expansive retrospective exhibition, Emporium that will survey this diverse creative practice through the thematic concerns that have preoccupied Paramor. Notions of desire, seduction and stereotypical clichés that reside in popular culture and romantic literature have long fascinated and fed into Paramor’s curiosity with transforming urban waste into, as Paramor herself puts it, “eccentric and poetic ensembles”.

Curated by Diane Soumilas, the exhibition will bring together work from private and public collections as well as present sculptures from her newest series Wild Cards – commissioned specifically for this exhibition. Bringing together these works will present the overarching narrative of Paramor’s forty-year career as one of the country’s highly regarded and influential contemporary sculptural artists.
