This exhibition looks at the creative aspects of recycling, deconstructing and re-building found reference materials (books, maps, etc) into artworks.

Emma uses objects, images, and text to explore recurring themes such as the fragmented nature of memory, time and history. Found objects are reconstructed into artworks which often have a defined structural or ‘architectural’ form relating to the space they inhabit, but also standing as a tangible and symbolic presence of the information contained within (books, maps, letters, etc).

The exhibition brings together a series of installations and sculptures dealing with issues of deconstruction and transformation and the ambiguity of communication, and  includes an ongoing series of work dealing with maps, their imagery and concepts. A series of maps and atlases have been painstakingly ‘dissected’ by the artist, revealing a radically altered visual and physical structure.
