Emily Mannion

Emily Mannion is an Irish artist currently based in London. She is a recent graduate of the Slade School of Art MFA in (2022) where she was awarded the Felix Slade Scholarship, and shortlisted for the Sarabande Foundation scholarship. She was also awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant (2021), and shortlisted for the Chadwell Award (2022). She creates narrative vignettes culled from personal history, literature, music and film. At times these scenes seem banal, in others absurd. They are purely imagined spaces that are vague and elusive, offering fragmentary impressions of wonder, beauty, loneliness, and dread. These interiors are usually populated with objects, both uncanny and transcendent - a glove, an insect under a glass, a spoon, a curtain shimmers, things are only half revealed. Animals and figures sometimes appear yet they can be more present in their absence. She is particularly interested in how the domestic speaks of an intimacy, and also an interiority of the mind, where all inhabited spaces give rise to the notion of home. Where a room can serve as a functional enclosing, a social construct or can be a metaphor for the psyche.
