In Leg Up London-based artist Emma Cousin (b. 1986) investigates the body as the site of experience - examining what we can and cannot control in all aspects of daily life, and questioning the meanings of mobility, both physical and social. Using the body as a metaphor, and emphasising the role that the body plays in processing and defining our experiences, Cousin’s paintings present a pantheon of women performing everyday gestures to address notions of time, aging, strength, inertia and vulnerability.
Leg Up takes forward Cousin’s residency research project, Legwork, started at Wimbledon in October 2016 and is supported by paintingresearch at Wimbledon College of Arts and Isabel Bingley at Lewisham Arthouse Gallery. The work is accompanied by a text by Luce Garrigues and Amy Mechowski. The results of the artist’s residency research project, Legwork will be published on 8 October in the form of a catalogue including contributions from over 30 artists.
