Molly Pemberton
Victim of Reality: Noir #6
Molly Pemberton
With a heavy emphasis on the handmade, Molly Pemberton’s practice explores the notion in which the escalation in digital technology composes our understanding of reality. She aims to convey how craft-based activities can be utilised to emphasise tactility and materiality; that which separates the handmade from the digital.

Pemberton addresses the proliferation of digital imagery enabled by the availability and immediacy of the internet and how these images might mediate reality. Influenced by Jean Baudrillard’s writing, recent work has questioned the impact of deteriorating images and information disseminated online and how such reproductions may transform the meaning of the originals.

Inspired by science fiction and dystopias – related imagery, colour palettes and themes emerge throughout Pemberton’s practice. Typically, work materialises as documentative and durational objects of the colour red. This seeks to highlight the mundanity and monotony, as well as by contrast the fascinating and formidable extraordinariness of this digital age.
