Ideas of embodiment and contemporary nomadic feminine spirituality are central to Emma Rochester’s art practice. Using multiple forms of art mediums she travels between sacred sites for the divine feminine. By traversing between geographical spaces that are considered to be gendered landscapes or sacred sites particular to the Goddess, Emma Rochester’s artistic research reflects both an itinerant and site specific form of contemporary art making. Hence her body appears in the making of the work as well as in the performative aspect of the work itself. The body is unveiled, as a site of transformation: So too is the land the body walks on. Whilst situated at Jiwar Emma Rochester will explore contemporary revelations and experiences of the black Madonna enshrined at the nearby sacred mountain, Montserrat.
