The Slow Sow
-
10th January 2017
Gallery 46, Whitechapel, London

I'm inviting all women to come and participate in The Slow Sow.  A workshop guided by myself and London Terrariums (see image) to create an indoor garden as a tribute to artisans/makers and their embodied skill and a symbol of collective transformation. I am inspired by the fact that what will come of this is largely up to chance.

The character of ‘ Penelope’ from The Odyssey was introduced to me as a teenager and then again recently through our 'Modern Penelope’ suppers and by sharing articles. When I think of her the act of gardening comes to mind, perhaps through her unique forward and backward process of making and unmaking: using a shroud as a means to shield herself from the unbearable truth of her uncertain future. I see her invention or preoccupation as a resourceful survival skill and object that has enabled her to master time, maintain her space and fundamentally her sanity.

In our current climate, and my recent work at Solace Womensaid, a charity that supports women who have experienced domestic violence and sexual abuse, I find the symbol or act of gardening most powerful as it unhooks us from our dependency on instant gratification, drama and consumerism. I am particularly drawn to the fact that gardening forces us to slow down and surrender to a very organic process, which takes time.

The workshop is an opportunity to come together as women, share and have fun being creative.

Can you come and participate? 


*You will need to bring your own vessel to take part.
*There will be no charge and it will be part of the exhibition until the 20th January. 
*You will need to either donate it or pick it up on the final day.

Booking is required due to limited spaces.

An Irregular Network of Passages
-
PV 29th June, Open 30 June - 1st Sept 2016
Lamb Arts, Shepherd's Market, London

LAMB Arts presenta An Irregular Network of Passages,a multi­disciplinary exhibition including works by Camilla Emson, Tete de Alencar, and G.T. Pellizzi, curated by Roya Sachs. An Irregular Network of Passages explores the mental and physical pathways we traverse in routing our day to day lives, and the obstacles we encounter in doing so. The show, along with the title ­ referring to a labyrinth, invites audiences to travel through the different channels of these artists’ works.

Camilla Emson’s large scale maze­like installation is split into seven floor­to­ceiling muslin strips layered with natural dyes, capsules, pigment and thread. Referencing Greek mythology and Ariadne’s thread that helped Theseus overcome the Minotaur and find his way out of the labyrinth, Emson’s installation invites viewers to make their own path through the space, following Emson having cut the threads that tie each panel together. Emson continues, “The strange jungle like overflow of threads, and digested capsules refer to the neuroplasticity of the brain, and how the map of our brain is constantly adapting and changing depending on our environment”. Research suggests the more novel, unpredictable or rich the environment, the more our brain alters. Emson aims to display this plastic nature in a jungle form, where audiences can use their instincts to guide themselves through the space. The colours add to this rich environment and speak to different energy points of the body, evoking various senses, associations and memories ­ giving each participant a unique journey through the installation.

 
 


Art Barter Dubai
-
March 14-19 2016
Warehouse 60, Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz, Dubai

ART BARTER DUBAI aims to make works more accessible to the public while questioning the notion of the art market. Having to barter also motivates the viewer to think about what they have to offer the artists that is unique. It then prods the artists to value their own work via non-monetary mechanisms as they ultimately decide which barter to accept.

The Dubai edition will feature emerging and established artists from the UAE alongside a range of international artists.

To date, Art Barter exhibitions have taken place across the world including London, Berlin, New York, Madrid, Istanbul and Mexico City, with more than 130 of all exhibited artworks (over 70%) exchanged at the end of each show.

Since its inception, Art Barter has seen over 3,600 offers made on works exhibited. Previous exchanges that have taken place include: a Tracey Emin monoprint for 30 hours of French tutoring; a Jason Dodge neon work for a week in a Scottish castle; and the shipping of artworks to Venice in exchange for a Gavin Turk screen-print.

Other offers included web design, three months of psychotherapy, a retreat in South of France, the artist’s weight in chocolate, a goldsmith’s skills, web design, three months of psychotherapy, a retreat in France, a mixtape, a bespoke piece of furniture, tickets to a Patti Smith concert and a gallop on a white horse.

The exhibition opens on the same day as Alserkal Avenue’s popular Galleries Night and will coincide with Art Week 2016, which includes Art Dubai, Design Days Dubai, the artist-led festival Sikka and a roster of other art and design events; a time when the local, regional and international arts community will be fully engaged with the city.



The Behaviour of Being
-
PV 29th September - October 2015
The Cob Gallery, London

In London, a recurrent topic at every social gathering of young Artists, revolves around the need to find spaces that will inspire us to create new rituals and prosperous creative processes. Today we are confronted by a series of obstacles that are for everyone, at the heart of our social and spiritual crisis. High property prices, and the lack of free communal spaces, are intrinsically linked to the impulse of encouraging a major shift in our current values. Finding these spaces, will lead to a reawakening of lost consciousness. We are moving towards the need to create strong local communities and to turn our view towards The Natural World. This is what a group of 14 Artists set out to discover at our residency, under the Algarvian sun.

The Cob Gallery and The Beekeepers in association with Mia Pfeifer invited an esteemed group of creators to explore these themes. Representing diverse artistic disciplines, including photography, performance, sculpture, painting, poetic studies and visual arts. We took them on a journey back to the land, to create a community where departing from each of their individual, creative practices, they became part of a collective project. The resulting exhibition is a joyous reflection of our environment and an ecstatic reimagining of our time together.


Bordering one of Europe's largest nature reserves, lies thirty hectares of terrain, boasting mature olives and fruit trees. There are two houses and several multifunctional structures built with the sole purpose to host creative minds. The Beekeepers located in Portugal is the brainchild of Tom Leamon, Jennifer MT White and local artist Pedro Leitao.

Featuring
Pauliana Valente Pimemtel, Adeline de Monseignat, Becky Allen, Tom Leamon, Camilla Emson, Pedro Leitao, Cat Roissetter, Bea Bonafini, Paola De Ramos, Jennifer MT White, Oliver KingHeadSwim, Ben Westley Clarke and Laura Adamson.

Shapeshifters
-
20th November - February 2014
Slyzmud Gallery, Bonpland 721, Buenos Aires

Shapeshifters is a group exhibition examining the human condition and the different formulas of diverse concepts and ideals our contemporary culture use in search; and to ultimately reach, their perceived life enhancing strategy. The three artists shown are from three different parts of the world, each examining, through their varying practices' the mediums ideas on the physical, the self, loss of faith and alternative forms in achieving the sublime.

Material Identity
-
9 October - 3 November 2014
Rook and Raven Gallery, London

To coincide with Frieze Art Week 2014, Rook & Raven exhibited the work of acclaimed Colombian artist, Olga de Amaral, alongside four young, female artists; Emilie Pugh, Camilla Emson, Yun-Kyung Jeong and Adeline de Monseignat. This group of emerging young artists each produced works inspired by the Colombian matriarch, exploring cultural identity and femininity through their material practise.

Material Identity is an introspective journey through the multidisciplinary practise of the artists in the exhibition, whose works explore the varied and changing cultural landscape of identity. The inherent delicacy of their works evokes a sense of balance between what is material and immaterial, between form and composition, and the physical and metaphysical.

MA Fine Art Chelsea in collaboration with MA Dance Movement Psychotherapy, Goldsmiths

‘Bodies never lie’ – Agnes de Miller

Visual Art and Performance. Presence and Absence. Though seemingly unrelated pairs of words, there is an intrinsic undercurrent of rhythm which connects practice based disciplines towards each other - this often brings out various connections, connotations, and inferences. All 12 artists exhibiting engage with this very undissolved threshold - a careful precipice on the edge of two disciplines (visual and performative) presenting a very subtle exchange between the various models of exaggerated expression. This kind of creative articulation which navigates between these two modes, also moves towards the masked broader question of what is real construction and what is not - what is perceived as a model of truth and what is not (in both a materialistic, philosophical and theoretical climate).
UNDISSOLVED explores this terrain which is both the point of departure and the portal of arrival - with performances, Live art, installations, sculptures, and video works which explore the subject either with the presence or the absence of the human body in them, which then becomes the ‘object’ of exploration.”

artists include: Jonny Briggs, Lauren Kelly, Floris Kaayk, Sophie Noonan, Andrea Hasler, Jpek Koprulu, Oliver Jones, Chloe and Rosser 

Future Flesh, curated by artists Jack Spencer Ashworth and Katrine Roberts, will look at how different contemporary artists are exploring the role of the physical body in the contemporary context. Using a myriad of mediums and approaches, all the work shares a concern for Flesh - the physical stuff of the body - and each piece uses material to describe flesh directly. The exhibition wishes to show how our contemporary experiences of living in the 21st Century have changed and informed the way artists have responded to art's oldest subject matter: the body; and how rapid developments in science and technology have changed our reality and, therefore, our relationship with our bodies.

Curator and artist Marinette Kaus and the Crypt Gallery present: And you, what do you worship? - A group show of 30 artists in response to David Foster Wallace 2008’s speech: 'Plain old untrendy troubles and emotions'.

The show will present young British artists that include Camilla Emson, Adeline de Monseignat, Marinette Kaus and Lee Suh 

Marinette Kaus, instigator and curator of the exhibition, says: ‘On a daily basis we make decisions to what has meaning and what doesn’t; we are looking for little truths'. What you’ll find in the Crypt is the work of artists investigating what is real and essential, 'so hidden in plain sight all around us. (David Foster Wallace)’

Verging
-
Private View: 20th February 6pm, 21-25 February
Frameless Gallery, 20 Clerkenwell Green, EC1R 0DP

In common with all the work in Verging is a potency of materials.  All three artists, in different ways, use the tactile engagement with materials to arouse our senses.

At first glance these materials might be seductive; warm fur, soft wool, decorative colour but they stop short of category and remain in an active sweet-spot between the uncanny and familiar, seen and felt, a painting and a incidental object.

Private view: Wednesday 9th November 6.00pm-9.00pm
The Crate, 3 Dunworth Mews, Portobello Road, W11 1LE

This work is about discovering the wisdom or depth of the body.  I am interested in our own internal alchemic potential: the transformative potential or happening that occurs inside the body.  Hillman speaks of acquiring a ‘taste for salt and blood,’ which becomes the seat of meaningful experience. For him, the salt of the body is what amplifies soulfulness.  I have photographed tear ducts using macro-lenses to expose a rare view of a common intimate part of the body.  I consider this one rare view of many common places we share as humans.
