(b.2001) Lily Petch is a visual, multidisciplinary artist, her practice ruminates upon the capacity writing has to outlive the human form. She encourages the potential, symbolism and fragility of chosen materials and their capacity to collapse or endure erasure. Contextually, she is informed by the history of language systems, particularly the shift from proto-sumerian pictograph to codified signs of logo syllabic cuneiform. This research takes material form in Petch’s practice through book-centric installations, wax cylinder sound recording, photography, bookbinding, and poetry.
