Emily Binks

Based at The Art House, Wakefield, Emily uses found objects, materials, and textiles to build narratives around the concept of ‘home’ on both a global and personal scale. Past works have included wearable emergency shelters, ‘Bothy’ installations and more recently, reconfigured domestic furniture frames amalgamated with pieces of neon.

For Yorkshire Sculpture International, Emily worked with Year 4 students from Blackgates Primary Academy, Leeds, to consider the idea of ‘relationships’, encouraging the children to consider the way in which sculpture uniquely connects to humans.

Our engagement programme

Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.

We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
