What Do Axis Artists Do All Day? Emily Speed

Discover the intimate and creative processes of Axis artists through our short film series, "What do Axis artists do all day?"

This film features Emily Speed, an artist whose practice explores the relationship between individuals and architecture, delving into the power structures that inhabit them.

Emily's diverse artistic practice spans drawing, ceramics, performance, and film, reflecting her fascination with how spaces can shape and are shaped by societal norms. We get a closer look at Emily's thought processes and her project "Flatland" for Tate Liverpool, which reimagines the Victorian satire to critique and expand upon its themes of hierarchy and spatial dynamics.
