Recent works are based around the psychology of space, which has resulted in a number of performative sculptures that are a kind of temporary architectural furniture. The idea of shelter and the inhabitant is at the core of much of her work; how a person is shaped by the buildings they have occupied and how a person occupies their own psychological space. The word inhabitant contains the root habit (dress) and implies a habitat (dwelling) and Emily's sculptures often have this double function of being both shelter and clothing or masquerade. Works like Mattdress & Drawers and Inhabitant are worn and performed, using somewhat absurd spaces constructed specifically to fit the artist's body. These constructions protect and make her vulnerable in equal measure.
Emily will present a newly commissioned work at the Bluecoat, Liverpool for Topophobia, open 3rd March - 22nd April. http://topophobia.co.uk/venues/bluecoat/
