AAM Hogwood Fellowship 2019 /2020
I am honoured to have been appointed to the role of Hogwood Fellow and Artist in Residence with the Academy of Ancient Music 2019 / 2020. During the course of the year I will be drawing alongside the AAM in rehearsal and performance and will be developing studio work in response to prevalent themes and concepts inspired by the music.
Profoundly beautiful, the Academy's music interrogates the past with great wisdom and sensitivity whilst never losing sight of its connection and currency with contemporary audiences. My heartfelt thanks to all involved in my appointment, especially to Alexander Van Ingen and Richard Egarr for their warm welcome, their enthusiasm for my work and for the great inspiration they - and all the AAM musicians - have given me.
Emma’s inspirational art is as compelling as it is visceral; dramatic and full of energy. Her work in response to AAM’s 300th anniversary performance of Handel’s Brockes-Passion features throughout the CD artwork (released on October 4th) exploring the dramatic tension of the narrative, and adds a new dimension to appreciate and absorb Handel and Brockes’ masterpiece of music and poetry. I’m thrilled to welcome Emma to AAM this season, and look forward to us inspiring each other through audible and visual art-forms to increase our audience’s opportunity to engage with art in all its forms, from the 1600’s to the modern day.”
