Emma Bäcklund is a Swedish artist based in London.

Her work centre around the body its boundaries. She works between photography, sculpture and performance. With a background in dance, interests in the body and spatiality continue to influence her ideas with focus on cognitive and physical experience. She aims to question preexisting forms, habits and structures and how to invent new unexplored patterns of form, movement and thinking processes. The physical relationship to images or objects are 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.
