Home Fires 06: Noémie Goudal

18 September 2020

Home Fires is a series of short conversations between Edel Assanti's artistic director Jeremy Epstein and gallery artists, discussing a recent or ongoing body of work. The conversations address inspiration, research and studio process, whilst framing individual works within a broader context of each artist's practice. 


In this episode of Home Fires we speak to Noémie Goudal about her forthcoming body of work, Les Mécaniques. In the series, Goudal delves further into the concept of "deep time" - referring to a scale of time that can be used to measure geological evolution, quantified in millions of years. The individual works are each grounded in researched historical scientific anecdotes or unproven discoveries, questioning the stability of our understanding of the landscape we inhabit.
