“The works in this series are made up of elements found in my larger bodies of work. They are all related, each having to do with place, memory, the known, and easily accessible, as well as things that are hidden. The idea of wonder, the making of meaning, and ways of knowing the world are threads that connect these kin.” 

Melissa Pokorny is a sculptor based in Urbana, Illinois. She has shown her work in venues across the US, in Chicago, New York City, Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. She is an Associate Professor at the University of Illinois, in Urbana Champaign.
