What is this curious vessel the soul chooses to live in?
In this question lies Emma’s urge to explore the body in all its layers, especially in its natural habitat: space.
Movement as an instinctive human reaction, she chooses to shape and mold her body in the world she sees as an infinite adventurous field. She plays with the relationship between the inner self, the physical body and the outer world by trusting its endless combinations. Seeking for balance or provoking instability, she creates situations or imaginary images to support her work. She finds meanings in embodying characters so as to discover new pathways and landscapes. Emma wants to make the intimate accessible, shareable: she thrives to exist as her own voice and gesture. She embraces the present moment as a medium, seeking to share an authentic experience with those around her. She takes the time to soak up the surrounding energy and uses it to cultivate her inner power. Ultimately, Emma’s journey into investigating her own curious vessel is an ever-evolving process of research.
