12 March - Emma Hart
Emma Hart, the winner of the 2016 Max Mara Prize for Women, has recently received much attention and critical praise for her large-scale installation Mama Mia!, shown at the Whitechapel Gallery, London, in 2017 and earlier this year at the Fruitmarket in Edinburgh, and for her collaboration with Jonathan Baldock, Love Life, touring concurrently in England. Combining handcrafted ceramics with audio visual media and often employing visual and verbal puns Hart reflects in her work on the psychology of family relations, frictions and behavioural patterns, or on the conflicts associated with love, domesticity and parenthood. Although she studied photography and initially learned her skills in shaping clay from YouTube, she has found in the tactile medium a vehicle that allows her "to talk about mess or chaos: all the stuff photography protects us from," and to do so with an equal dose of emotional honesty, sharp observation and contagious humour.
