Rachel Rozanski, the sixth annual Branscombe House Artist-in-Residence and interdisciplinary artist.

Richmondites are invited to a virtual launch party to welcome Branscombe House’s newest artist-in-residence on Feb. 11.

Rachel Rozanski, the house’s sixth artist-in-residence, is a Canadian artist whose works explore environmental transformations. Her practice looks at human activity and the impact people have on the planet’s climate and ecosystem.

At the virtual event, Rozanski will talk about her residency project followed by a question and answer session.

During her 11-month residency, she will be exploring Richmond’s islands by water as well as examining the evolution of the city’s landforms and unique ecosystems.

She is also looking to collaborate with community members that have personal connections or knowledge of local island geographies.

Rozanski has exhibited across Canada and internationally, showcasing work that explores scientific concepts focusing on environmental timelines. Her past residency projects in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Iceland have been inspired by the study of land change, pollutants, adaptations and extinctions.

The virtual launch party will be held on Feb. 11 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
