Emma Critchley’s practice draws on the experience of being immersed in water as a way of exploring notions of being. At MEANTIME Emma began a new series of video-works, filming with a freediver in Gloucestershire's wild waters. Dealing with less than ideal seasonal conditions, the resulting works are an exploratory reconnaissance of outdoor environments and of the thresholds where elements meet - mud, rock, water, air, sky. The cinematic tension is heightened by the ambiguous, dislocated presence of the underwater body represented only through its physiological sound.

During her concluding presentation Emma invited Adrian Harris to lead a Nature Connection Workshop by the River Chelt exploring our connection to nature through the senses.
