Emily Richardson’s films explore landscapes and environments to reveal the way that activity, movement and light is inscribed in place. Traversing an extraordinarily diverse range of landscapes including empty East End streets, forests, North Sea oil fields, post-war tower blocks and Cold War military facilities, her films offer a dazzling deconstruction of place and time. They focus the mind and eye to detail, finding transcendence and emotion in the everyday.

Richardson’s films have been shown in galleries and at festivals internationally including the Wapping Project, London (2011), Arprojx Cinema attThe Armory Show, New York (2011), FACT, Liverpool (2011), Tate Modern and Tate Britain, London (2009), Danielle Arnaud, London (2009), Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart. (2007), Uppsala Museum, Sweden (2007), and Venice, Edinburgh, London, Rotterdam and New York film festivals. She was awarded the Gilles Dusein Prize, Paris, 2009 in recognition of her films..
