Emii Alrai works primarily in sculpture and installation. She conceives large-scale realms relating to archaeological research and the natural environments of excavated objects. Weaving together social memory, oral histories, inherited nostalgia and language, her practice questions the rigidity of Empire, and the power of hierarchy and history. Recent solo exhibitions include Reverse Defence, Workplace Foundation, Newcastle, 2022; A Core of Scar, The Hepworth, Wakefield, as part of the Future Collect Commission, 2022; and Passing of the Lilies, Jerwood Arts, London, 2021.
