Meet our Maker – Emma Jean Kemp

Date: 31.05.2018

How long have you been in your practice?

8 years.

What do you like about the studio?

The mix of people and disciplines and that we are all makers who help each other and work with our hands, not just our brains.

What’s inspiring you at the moment?

The movement and shapes created by acrobatics, which are not just visually awe inspiring but also remind me of the impressive capabilities of human body and what can be achieved with time and dedication. We are the most adaptive species on the planet and capable of so many things when we put our minds to it.

What did you eat for breakfast?

Always fruit & nut museli

Who’s your creative crush?

Juan Muñoz.

What skill changed your life?

Learning mould making and resin casting, but maybe preceded by life drawing.

Tea, coffee or caffeine free?

all of the above, depends on time of day and my mood.

What tool couldn’t you live without?

little metal plaster tool.

Desert Island playlist (3 songs)?

So hard to decide, can I just take a piano instead!

But if I must choose 3, at the moment it would be:

Seu jorge, Burguesinha,

Koop Island Blues by Koop,

The dreaming Sea, Karen Matheson

You can see Emma’s work at the Hours Gallery at her The Art of Acrobatics exhibition running from  Friday 8th June to Sunday 10th June at Hours Space Gallery.
