Emma Marks uses the sensuality of making with clay as a basis to reimagine our relationships with things. Her ideas span between embodied learning and world-making.
Emma uses multiple approaches to explore what we can learn from the enrapturing act of working with clay and offers us new encounters using ceramics, film, sound and photography.
Whilst at the RCA, she has engaged in teaching practice at the University of Hertfordshire and has assisted with Clay for Dementia workshops at the Garden Museum, London.
Emma has a BSc in Physiology from the University of Bristol and a BA in Sculpture from Camberwell College of Arts. She has taken part in several artist-led group shows since 2012. Selected exhibitions and awards include: HIX Award Finalist 2015, Penguin Art Prize 2015, East Sussex Open at Towner Gallery 2016.
Emma intends to grow her investigative practice and to find more opportunities to exhibit installations rooted in ceramics. She loves to collaborate and looks forward to engagement through workshops and teaching.
