Catalogue Note

The Maremma Heads were the first series of works produced by Emily Young after she moved her studio from London to an empty semi-ruined monastery in Italy, near Rome in 2011. Here she worked with the local stone, a kind of brecchiated quartz. The heads were carved from her own pantheon of human characteristics; warrior, poets, lost angels, the silent and the silenced.
