Emily Richardson's films and installations explore landscapes and environments to reveal the way that activity, movement and light are 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.
Richardson's films are distributed by LUX, London (http://www.lux.org.uk) and have been shown in galleries and at festivals internationally including Tate Modern and Tate Britain, London (2009), Danielle Arnaud, London (2009), Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart. (2007), Uppsala Museum, Sweden (2007), Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland (2007) and Edinburgh, London, Rotterdam and New York Film Festivals. She was recently awarded the Gilles Dusein Prize, Paris in recognition of her films to date.
A book of her work, Time Frames, is published by Stour Valley Arts, distributed by Cornerhouse, Manchester and a DVD of 6 recent films is published by LUX and available from.
