Emily Whitebread

Working across diverse media ranging from performance and video work to written publications, Emily Whitebread investigates breaks down and reimagines utopian futures.

Emily’s starting point is how visionary ideas are formalised and presented in dogmatic discourse that canonises particular historic moments. Renegotiating these reductive archives to re-imagine the potentialities contained within the original ideas. Collaborating with diverse groups, from acrobats to physicists, is for Emily a method to propel unexpected narratives. The resulting work is often a playful proposition or perspective on the world, drawn from diverse sources. A sense of absurdity and a wry sense of humour often surface, as do underlying sharp political agendas.
