Emily Motto

Quintete, 2020

“I’m thinking a lot about flat-packability at the moment. About making and moving stuff. About bringing things, volumes, objects into the world for [an amount of] time. About temporality, sustainability, endurance.”
Emily Motto works between sculpture, installation and drawing, creating playful and unstable forms, arenas and mazes. Her work experiments with what can happen when shapes and lines are extended into palpable forms in space, with dependencies on weight, material reactions, and physical limits. She is fascinated by how forms can share in a bodily sense of space with viewers.
Motto’s works perform and evolve throughout, and beyond, her creation
of them – particularly in terms of shape, and the physical entropy of the unstable materials that she builds them from. She is fascinated by support frames and structures, and how they themselves can be broken down and become malleable.
