Littoral: a ceramic installation is a collaboration between artist Emily S Jefferis and Caroline Fisher Projects. Originally made as part of a residency at Open School East, Margate, the piece will be recreated for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival with a new plinth and additional ceramic pieces, adding to the richness and immersivity of the work.

The concept of the work grew out of Emily’s preoccupation with the biological, geological and botanical. She discovered how the environments of coastal rockpools are microcosms of human society. She likes to question the anthropocentric view of the world that we humans are locked into and to explore the micro- and macroscopic through ceramics and other media such as sound and film.

The work gives us pause to reflect on our current impact on many marine species, such as the dissolution and mutation of their skeletons through Co2 induced acidification of the ocean. She hopes that the viewer will become immersed in the wonder of rock pool life, one that is fragile and through our attention to it and subsequent action, can be conserved.

Emily will be on site to talk about her work on the first weekend of the exhibition and she will deliver two ticketed clay workshops on Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 May, tickets are available from https://nnfestival.org.uk.

The exhibition is open 12 noon to 5pm from Thursday to Sunday

Since her graduation from the Royal College of Art in 2018, Emily has been involved in many exhibitions and education projects and her CV can be found HERE
