INTERACT WITH THEM

YatesEm

EMMA & YATES are the creators of the upcoming ONEOFUS piece AGAINST NATURE. WE caught up with them to examine their influences behind the work.

Against Nature will be a drawing/poem sequence that draws on the grotesque and the monstrous, especially decorative grotesque marginalia. We are interested in how text and image play off one another, and the theatrical possibilities of this. To this end, Emma is writing short pieces of poetry and script, and Yates is drawing. We are going to interweave these so that each person who sees it can piece together their own narrative.

Broadly speaking, our work is interested in the relationship between space, things, people, texts and images. For Against Nature, we have been focusing on the ways in which our relationship with everyday objects offers ways of thinking through the uncanny, a concept in much of our research and making. Drawing on Yates’ research into French eighteenth-century ornament, we have considered matter and affect in decorative schemes, and have considered the relationship between ornament, description, and narrative. This intersection between writing, looking, visualising, and feeling has been integral to our work as a whole. Many of our collaborations deploy text, image, and material as ways of thinking through our research interests.

AGAINST NATURE

What is monstrosity? Can language be monstrous? This work draws on a history of grotesquerie, decorative programmes which emerged from the marginalia of texts. Spaces of fantasy, and representations of a nature that goes against nature, against the grain.  Poetry and images will be interlaced with one another to explore the relationship between word and image in the context of the monstrous and grotesque.

Yates Norton & Emma Stirling

DARLING

A woman watches from the balcony, her white dress and mournful song drift down to him in wispy tendrils.

Mournful harmonies mingle in the echoing church, as two lovers re-live their ill-fated affair. Pick up your hymn book and turn to song number

666…
