About The Artwork

Being in the landscape always seems to affect me in ways I could never imagine. Certain places or encounters creep into my life and simmer away in obsession. ‘Je vois bien le bleu’ is the tale of such a moment, inspired by a chance encounter. Blue has always been a presence in my life but on one particular day I started to ask myself why. While running in the mountains, I crossed paths with an elderly blind man as we both tried to reach the same bridge. After stopping briefly to share our stories, I began to move away and he called out, ‘Je vois bien le bleu’ (I see blue well). All he could see of me was the colour of my top. His words continue to echo through my mind over the course of the years. These echoes and obsessions have led my research, taking their form in the various ways I have tried to picture the encounter and find meaning. Carl Jung describes synchronicity as meaningful occurrences that seem to be ‘a falling together in time’ rather than due to cause and effect. A strange moment of clarity in the normal chaos of life. Quantum entanglement is when two different particles become linked and act as such even when apart. Once connected they are never fully separate from each other. And so, this project is about the traces we leave on each other. It is about human connection and how we search for meaning in places and events.

Emma Godfrey Pigott (b. 1979, UK) is a Swiss-based visual artist and writer living in the Alps. She is currently studying a Master of Fine Arts at the University of South Wales studying under Lisa Barnard and Mark Durden. Prior to this she was self-taught and one of the founding members of Natasha Caruana’s ‘Work Show Grow’ artist education platform. She was a finalist in the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) International Photography Exhibition 2019 and won an Honourable Mention in the 14th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Her work has been exhibited at FotoNostrom Barcelona, RPS House Bristol and at the 2023 Bienal de Foto do Porto Portugal. Her writing has been published on the RPS Hundred Heroines blog. The landscape is a key aspect in Emma’s practice: for her it becomes a character and stage upon which to explore the experience of being in the world. Her research focuses on liminality and New Materialism as a paradigm for understanding the changes that are happening in our world especially due to the climate crisis. Working across a range of lens-based media and alternative processes, she plays with the capture and surface of the photograph, allowing chance and generative, collaborative strategies to influence the outcome. She is interested in how exhibition spaces can affect visual meaning and aspires to work with installation and sculpture in the presentation of her work.
