Camilla Emson’s practice considers the body as an intelligent vessel. Her appropriation of unfamiliar tools and multi-disciplinary practice calls forward her body as an intuitive storyteller.

The making of Emson’s raw and fragile sewn canvases and blown glass vessels involves intimate processes of repair, embodiment and re-configuration. Her practice is rooted in her devotion to malleability and her interest in vulnerability.
