Emma Bäcklund


Emma Bäcklund is a Swedish multi-disciplinary artist based in Berlin and London. Working with photography, performance, sculpture and writing she explores the body, its boundaries and consequences of its environment. She investigates social systems, power relations and cognitive impact on the physical body. While questioning preexisting structures, habit and gesture she strives to invent unexplored patterns of form, movement and thinking processes. The physical relationship is essential in her process of making and the photograph as a performative document explore elements of gesture. There are slippages between image, object and subject.

Emma received her MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art (2017) and her BA in Photography from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (2015). Her upcoming solo exhibition Clench in Leeds (10 - 17 Oct ) explore contradictions in meaning between materials in relation to body, mimicry and power relations.
