Ira Elliot Corbett

Ira Elliot Corbett (Minneapolis, MN) uses inspiration from the fluidity of natural cycles and physical formations in the landscape to inform their sculptural and functional forms. Corbett pursues, through art created parallel to nature, an understanding of personal identity and acceptance of the fluid and constant changing nature of identity. Through the WMAA grant, Corbett will expand their perspective with a journey west where, “…there are more extremes of temperature, and quick and dramatic weather changes. I am extremely interested in experiencing a vastly different climate and environment, and see how I can incorporate that change in my concepts of queer identity.”
