Emily Speed

"My work, which comprises installations, drawings, artists’ books and sculptures, often seems to exist in an in-between state where it can be difficult to ascertain whether works are in a half-built or half-derelict state. These are often lonely, isolated structures, with a seemingly short life; shelters offering the briefest respite, and storage that can hold only the smallest, lightest items. The dependency of the work on the environment in which it is built and shown is also something that interests me greatly; my work is often balanced, propped, wedged or held together through tension and I often work site-specifically."
