Emily Motto GBA
Emily works between sculpture, installation and drawing, often creating playful and unstable forms, arenas and mazes. Her work plays with what can happen when shapes and lines are extended into palpable forms in space, with dependencies on weight, material reactions, and physical limits. She enjoys how forms can share in a bodily sense of space with viewers.
She graduated from the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford in 2014, and is currently living and working in Liverpool whilst the New Contemporaries studio bursary holder at the Bluecoat 2019-20.
Selected exhibitions include Provisional Conditions at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall, London; Taking Shape: Sculpture on the Verge at Pangaea Sculptors' Centre, London; ON&OFF at Proyecto Medellin, Mexico City; and the December Mostra at the British School at Rome, Italy. Recent solo exhibitions include Intervals at NLS Kingston, Jamaica; Holdfast at Chalton Gallery, London; and Postures at Rice+Toye, London.
