Exhibition on 6 - 23 August. Emma will present an artist talk at 12 noon on Thursday 8 August.
Emma views herself as part of ‘the wandering folk’. Descendant of migrants, and
a migrant herself, she always finds herself in the position of the visitor, the outsider, the other. She explores in her work the multifaceted tensions and shifting borders of what identity is in a global present.
This reflection is also informed by her training in museology and love of history, both geological and human.
Emma Louise Pratt studied at Ilam School of Fine Art, Canterbury University, and has lived in Spain from 2016 until last year when she moved to England, where she currently lives with her husband and two children.
