Emma Cousin @ White Cube

22 January 2021 - 9 March 2021

Emma Cousin’s figurative paintings feature dynamic, carnivalesque scenarios that explore the space between realism and fantasy, felt experience and communication.

Responding to the limitations of language when used to articulate the complexities of human experience and emotions, Cousin considers how we might interact without it, in pre- or post-linguistic states.  Taking this idea of ‘the failure of language to the ultimate point’, she imagines how the gestures of the body would now take over.
