Emma Ingeborg Bäcklund is a Swedish artist based in Berlin.

Working between photography and performance, her work explore ambiguities of the physical as well as the photographic body. A boundary is not necessarily a fixed form but fluid and dependent on context.


Dance, neuroscience and the image culture are fundamental aspects in her research process. Questions concern what it means to inhabit a body that exists in both the physical space, the image surface and in relation to the ‘other’ which inevitably confronts the relation to 'self'.

She received her MA Photography at Royal College of Art, London 2017. Previous education includes BA in Photography at London College of Communication 2015, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Foundation Diploma Graphic Design 2012, London UK and Stockholm University of Arts, Art and Design diploma 2010, Stockholm, Sweden.

She is currently part of the European Prospect project “A Woman's Work”.
