Emily Price’s practice comprises of a variety of forms – from durational video and sound installation to performance, sculpture and happenings – but a relationship with a community is always at the core. Her projects involve collaboration with different individuals and groups of people. By spending time and getting to know a place and its people, Emily can then understand and facilitate projects that matter to them.
Emily Price uses art as a tool or device to deal with current civil and political issues and attempts to unlock something within communities, whether that is celebrating what is already there or creating a space for unheard voices to be acknowledged. Through her work Emily seeks to respond to present urgencies, deal with real situations and have an impact on communities that leave an impression on the larger cultural and political landscape.
Emily Price completed an MA Media & Communication at Goldsmiths (2010), establishing a strong theoretical basis to her work (including flexibility of meaning, observation of cultural change and preservation of history). This led her to study cculpture at the Royal College of Art where she continued to make work in response to various traditions and rituals that happen in the UK today.
