Emma Cocker - The Yes of the No

Emma Cocker - The Yes of the No

£15.00

Existing in the space between imaginative proposition and a call to action, The Yes of 
the No is an assemblage of provocations, proposals and potential ways of operating
— ranging from navigating the city and inhabiting the margins to errant acts of reading; from preparing for the unexpected
to learning how to ‘not know’, from minor acts of singular sedition to collective expressions of an insurgent ‘we’.

Emma Cocker is a writer-artist based in Sheffield and Reader in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University. Cocker’s work often addresses the endeavour of creative 
labour, focusing on models of (art) practice and subjectivity that resist the pressure of a single, stable position by remaining wilfully unresolved. Her recent writing has been published in Failure (2010); Stillness in a Mobile World (2011); Drawing a Hypothesis: Figures of Thought (2011); Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art (2012); On Not Knowing: How Artists Think (2013); Reading/ Feeling (2013) and Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line (2017).
