Emma Bäcklund is a multi-disciplinary Swedish artist based in Berlin and London. Working with photography, performance, sculpture and writing she investigates the body, its boundaries and consequences of its environment. Her work concern social systems, power relations and cognitive impact on the physical body. While questioning preexisting structures and habits 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.
