Pascal Emmer conjuries allegories from the cracked textures, vibrant hues and organic or geologic forms of his ceramics, presented from the perspective of a speculative fiction writer. The Santa Fe artist’s new body of work, sub/terre/fuge, is a speculative tale about transgenic hybridity, mycoremediation, and queer love. It speaks in the language of mycelium—the infinite underground networks that sustain us in a time of irradiated and toxic landscapes. This series of ceramic work is but one branch of a network that dreams of a future otherwise.
