Emma Waltraud Howes
Concerned with malleable boundaries, Emma Waltraud Howes incorporates movement, collage, sculpture, drawing, sound and video into her live performance and interdisciplinary installations. She studied Open Media at the Concordia University in Montreal and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar. The corporeal body in her work, similar to her material objects, can be seen as „characters“, emphatic subjects that serve to enunciate the purpose of dysfunctions. She frames these elements towards a reconciliation of mind-body dualisms, an optimistic proposition for incremental change.
Selected exhibitions include „New-Remembering“, C3 Contemporary Art Space, Abbotsford (2016); „How Far is Here“, MAGO, Eidsvoll (2015); „Ankyloglossia (n- tongue-tie)”, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (2014); “Performance Proletarians”, Magasin-Centre National d’Art Contemporain de Grenoble, France (2014); “Link & Pin: Participation”, Hub 14, Toronto (2013) and “Choreographing Digital Embodiment”, Architectural Association, London (2013).
