Emma is currently based in South Korea after being awarded a place as artist in residence with ‘Incheon Art Platform’. Commencing in March 2013 Emma will spend 3 months both on-site at the complex and on location developing a new series of works and associated projects during her time in South Korea. The concept of her project is to pinpoint cultural identity within a site specific context by engaging in community interaction and field research that looks into the relationship and transition between tradition and contemporary.
At present Emma has an introduction to her work featured in the ’2013 Access Platform’ Preview Exhibition hosted in Hall A at Incheon Art Platform that runs 7/3/2013 until 26/5/2013.
*Incheon Art Platform is a contemporary arts complex, operated by the Incheon Arts and Culture Foundation. The ethos is to support and nurture both Korean and International artists and research scholars, through the presentation of both educational and artistic programmes that encourage an active and creative dialogue between both the artists, the public and an international audience.
