Emily Hunt: Crystal Radio Geist

19 October - 18 November 2023

The only value of this world lay in its power - at certain times - to suggest another world.


A crystal radio relies on the properties of galena to receive and amplify radio waves. Likewise, the grey jelly of the artist's brain could be imagined as having the unique ability to receive and interpret creative stimuli in a way that is distinct to them.


The artist's ability to create new beings or worlds is quite profound. Perhaps all artists are like crystal radios, tuning in to other selves. The ceramics, paintings, and etchings of Emily Hunt seek to articulate another world that lives beside this one.


Sim Smith is delighted to present a solo exhibition of, Berlin based, Australian artist Emily Hunt. The exhibition will include ambitious new ceramic installations, paintings and etchings.
