A major new exhibition of new ceramics by Emilie Taylor, commissioned by Gallery Oldham. Emilie Taylor has a long-standing interest in representing the lives of people who exist in the gaps of society, which she describes as the Edgelands.
Emilie’s latest body of work is inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter, but in a contemporary setting. Demeter, the goddess of fertility and harvest is grief stricken to find that her daughter Persephone has been taken to the Underworld. Persephone is doomed to spend half the year in the Underworld and half on earth. Demeter’s grief means that nothing can grow on the earth during the time that Persephone is in the Underworld, meaning that the year is divided into winter and summer.
