Artist Emma Witter is breathing life back into bones in solo show at Sarabande Foundation

Artist Emma Witter will present a new series of work in Remember You Must Die, a solo show at the Sarabande Foundation from Wednesday 18th September to Sunday 22nd September, 2019. 

Featuring sculpture and special objects, derived mostly from bone, alongside photographic prints and a site-specific installation, the works will pay gentle tribute to the symbolic and emotionally loaded material. The series focuses on the flower motif, from which Witter forms beautifully intricate studies constructed from tiny chicken feet bones.

About Sarabande Foundation:

Sarabande Foundation was founded in 2007 by fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen CBE. McQueen passionately believed that creative minds with the potential to push boundaries should be given the same opportunities he’d enjoyed. Named after McQueen’s 2007 Spring/Summer collection, the foundation provides scholarships to students at graduate and postgraduate level as well as housing artist studios at Sarabande HQ for designers, artists and jewellers. Sarabande is there to observe and facilitate – the partners and friends of Lee are there to guide and inspire.The space is a place where it’s safe to experiment, to succeed, to fail but always to move forward. The genesis of all Lee’s achievements was his open-minded approach to absorbing diverse creative influences and applying them in new and exciting ways. It is that openness and bravery that Sarabande seeks to inspire in future generations of creatives.
