Emily Speed: Nothing Is Finished, Nothing Is Perfect, Nothing Lasts

30 March - 2 September 2012

Liverpool-based Emily Speed makes sculptural works that explore the temporary and transient nature of things. Through reference to architecture and the body, she investigates buildings as physical shelters and as containers for memory, bound with the history of their occupiers.

Speed has been commissioned as the second artist in our Wall Work series. Her new installation takes the folded shape of the gallery’s façade as a starting point and adds a layer to it, transforming the appearance of the wall into a giant, creased piece of paper.

“The ‘undone’ corner of this new building suggests architectural decay and transience. Like the dog-eared pages of a book that indicates past readers, the passage of time registers visibly on architecture and this fold is just one small trace of activity; a reminder of the occupants of the site.” Emily Speed

This work was made possible by the generous support of McD Marketing Ltd, with particular thanks to Philip Hutfield.

Emily was born in Chester in 1979. She is currently based at The Royal Standard studios in Liverpool.
