Los Angeles is a mystifying city. It is a place people dream about but its conflicted history is often overlooked. Outsiders believe that in sunny California nothing could go wrong; Emily Thorpe, a native Angeleno, is fascinated by this schism. Thorpe’s work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. Her work is an exploration of her own identity as a blonde, white, middle class woman from the Valley, and how her experience reflects upon the strange suburban-sprawled city of Los Angeles. Thorpe’s projects branch into a multitude of mediums. The beeswax she uses in her works operates as site of collected memory and a material for home building. The undercurrent theme of the domestic and the familiar is questioned by Thorpe’s investigation: is she acting on the city or if it is acting on her?
