Emma Hart | "Mamma Mia!"
Emma Hart’s new large-scale installation is the result of a six-month bespoke residency in 2016 and was divided between three Italian cities: Milan, Todi and Faenza. Hart presents a family of large ceramic heads/jug-like works – produced by the artist in Faenza – suggesting a dialogue with one other. The interior space of the heads is filled with vivid patterns, designed and hand-painted by Hart after researching the designs and practice of the Italian tradition of maiolica.
