In association with Scottish Women's Aid, Emma's showcased her body of work reCOVERy which explores the recovery experiences of women from domestic abuse. The exhibition and workshops were featured during the international campaign '16 Day's of Activism' against violence against women from 25th November - 10th December 2015. The exhibition space was gifted in kind by the Methodist Church, Nicolson Square, Edinburgh.
'...Really thought provoking pieces on Domestic abuse that capture the horror, terror,
entrapment and hope and strength of survivors' Nell Whiting
'very moving exhibition - a subject which is vital to be put into the light which this
[exhibition] does powerfully and simply' a survivor
'Powerful and moving exhibition. Really helps to make Evan Stark's concept of coercive
control accessible...' Julie Watson
The exhibit featuring 13 pieces in total included one 'live' exhibit where both survivors and supporters could contribute to the work, showing their support to the recovery movement. Women's Aid groups and The Willow Project have also contributed since the exhibition.
