Interview with Emma Elliott

29/11/16
Interview: Emma Elliott

Emma Elliott: Reconciliation 
Noho Studios, London
2-4 December 2016
and
A+E Studios, New York
1-31 March 2017

The work of the 2016 Passion For Freedom ambassador, Emma Elliott (b1983), certainly fits the bill for her role: her current project, Reconciliation, to be launched in London on 2 December, before touring to New York next spring, highlights the suffering of humanity at the hands of its fellow humans, while also speaking of the hope for finding a way forward; for unity and for reconciliation.


Classically trained in painting and figurative sculpture in London and Florence, Elliott turned to working with marble for this ambitious project, sculpting a larger-than-life arm, marked with the stigmata of Christ and the tattoo of Eliezer, a survivor of Auschwitz, whom she met and befriended on a kibbutz in Jerusalem.



Elliott spoke to Studio International about the project, its message and her hopes for its future.

Interview with Monica Bonvicini at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art

22/11/16
Interview: Monica Bonvicini

Monica Bonvicini: her hand around the room 
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead
18 November 2016 - 26 February 2017

Known for her conceptual and installation art and sculpture, Italian artist Monica Bonvicini (b1965, Venice) is one of the most vital artists to have emerged during the mid-90s, going on to win the prestigious Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1999. Her work investigates the relationships between architecture, control, gender, space, surveillance and power through the means of sculpture, installation, video, photography, text and performance. Known to UK audiences for Run (2012), her light installation at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, Bonvicini is taking over levels three and floor of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, with a survey show, including a significant body of drawing, as well as several newly commissioned pieces.



Although she was busy working on the final preparations for the exhibition, Bonvicini found time to answer some of Studio International’s questions by email.
