Bad Objects, Little Deaths

Up close and personal, and close to home, Emma Talbot’s new work is a negotiation of the physical in relation to her raw and emotional drawings. Her 3D pieces, ‘things as opposed to nothings’ are direct and honest manifestations of her internalised thoughts. A thinking process informed by the psychoanalytical writings of Melanie Klein, particularly her propositions about good and bad 'internal objects' - the complex cycles of projection and introjection between the world of internalised figures and objects (based on emotions, frustrations, needs and wants) and the outside real world.
