Emily Price


Emily Price, b. 1985, London.

Studied at The Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London.

Price is interested in the flexibility of meaning, observation of cultural change and preservation of history.

Price takes on the role of ethnographer and cultural archeologist who physically explores the land and spends time getting to know the people that inhabit it. Price re-presents her discoveries in thought-provoking, immersive and visceral ways: through durational video and sound installation, performance, sculpture and happenings.

Price also adapts to the role of initiator, facilitator and catalyst, proposing an alternative use of art within society. Price utilises creative thinking to offer solutions to current social and political issues. Price invites individuals to take an active role in meaning-making through open-ended and multi-layered works, participatory roles and collaboration.

Price's intentions are to make work that has a long lasting impact in the local community which will leave an impression on the larger cultural and political landscape. Price's hope is to make the world around her a little better than she found it.
