Emma Bäcklund is a Swedish artist whose practice includes photography, performance and installation.

Bäcklund draws from her dance background and interest in neuroscience to create work that is informed by both cognitive and physical experiences. She is interested in the performative nature of photography and questions representations of the body in visual culture. Photography is often explored in conjunction with other materials such as performance, installation, and more recently, textile components. Collaboration is an important method in her work. Her practice expands into the realms of workshops, teaching, and curating.

Bäcklund received her MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London, U.K, in 2017.

Previous education includes a BA in Photography from London College of Communication (2015) and a Foundation Diploma in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (2012), as well as an Art and Design Diploma from Folkuniversitetet, Stockholm, Sweden (2010).

She is  co-founder of Chapters.
