MANOR BORN

Emilie was commissioned by Yorkshire Artspace and Green Estates, Sheffield, to develop a project with young men aged 16-19, resident on the Manor Estate in Sheffield.

The project used play and drawing to explore ideas of masculinity, both in the historical context of the Manor Castle and Manor Lodge site, and in their contemporary experience as young men on the Manor. Large wall mounted ceramic pieces were made for display outdoors in the spaces where the men worked. The imagery chosen by the men is a combination of historical references, contemporary identity, work and play.
