Emily Colipí is a British Chilean multi-disciplinary artist working across the fields of sculpture and performance. Recent works are an exploration of Place, Heritage and Anthropology, influenced while living with the Likan-Antai, an indigenous community in Northern Chile. Performative works begin to comment on the displacement of people and question the implication of forced movement. Materiality is consistently present within the works, interested in how material composition can impose or challenge form. Found materials are often included in sculptures, triggering memory, whilst questioning anthropologically, the value we place on somewhat futile objects. Clay has a major prominence within the works, acting as a connection to past and future civilizations. We are part of the continuum –

Pushing, kneading, folding, prodding, dropping, throwingall actions justifying existence.
