Interview with Emma Elliott

Interview: Emma Elliott

Emma Elliott: Reconciliation 
Noho Studios, London
2-4 December 2016
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.
