Emma Hart @ Whitechapel Gallery
July 12, 2017 - September 3, 2017
A new large-scale installation by London-based artist Emma Hart for the sixth edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women. The commission is the result of the artist’s six month bespoke residency which started in June 2016 and was divided between three Italian cities: Milan, Todi and Faenza.
Mamma Mia! is the culmination of an investigation into pattern, from visual patterns to patterns of psychological behaviour. The work also looks at the design and rupture of pattern and the ruminations in between.
