Emma Witter – Window Exhibition
Throughout London Craft Week, artist Emma Witter will be presenting a new collection of small sculptures in the window of her Fulham Road studio.
The objects reflect the fascination that Victorian Britain had with the sea, the advancements in scientific discovery and the profound impact this had on popular fiction and culture. Emma forages for ocean biomass and old metal contraptions, which she meticulously dismantles – reassembling and combining them into curious new artefacts. Reminiscent of 19th century parlour ornaments, nautical instruments, fishmongers tools and elaborate table ware of the past, these intricate works make us nostalgic for tales of
sea-faring adventure and prompt our uncharted imagination.
