Six recent 16mm film works by British artist Emily Richardson.
Emily Richardson’s films explore landscapes and environments to reveal the way that activity, movement and light is inscribed in place. Traversing an extraordinarily diverse range of landscapes including empty East End streets, forests, North Sea oil fields, post-war tower blocks and Cold War military facilities Richardson’s films offer a dazzling deconstruction of place and time. They focus the mind and eye to detail, finding transcendence and emotion in the everyday.
Emily Richardson’s time lapse studies make for compelling and surprisingly eventful viewing... her extraordinary compositional sense, her precise editing, and her uncanny intimation of the menace and beauty of cities at night. She is undoubtedly a major talent. Shane Danielsen, Edinburgh International Film Festival
