Beyond the Physicality of the Flesh

4 - 10 July 2013


Emma Wakefield is a second year student at the University of Northampton, and presents a body of work which explores the representation of the human form. The works range from photograms, sculptures and a large installation.


At the core of Wakefield’s work is an interest in addressing the taboo that surrounds physical disfigurement, deformity and impairments. “These have been classed as taboo topics; whereby people do not know how to address and accept these issues, resulting in bullying, prejudice and discrimination”.  Through her visual re-presenting of physical conditions, Wakefield hopes to offer an alternative approach where instead of being hidden; the issues are explored and explained.
