Emma Hedditch (b.1972, U.K) is an artist living in New York. Their work focuses on daily practice, materiality, and distribution of knowledge as political action. They work with a framework for creative activity, that has a profound elasticity, contained by a continued sense of commitment to social relations and unravelling institutional frameworks through self-organization, tasks and projects, rather than a commitment to an institution’s rules or because of theprovision of wealth creating activities.
Their video work includes Self-Regulating Systems (2016), Permanent verbalization (2015), A Pattern, (2014), We Are The Signs And The Signal (2008),Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema (2007) and Raising A Resister (2000). These videos have screened at the Oberhausen Film Festival, The Elizabeth Foundation, New York, Goethe Institute, New York, MACBA, Barcelona, Galería Macchina, Santiago, Artists Space, New York, Peltz Gallery, U.K, Haus der Kunst, Munich and LUX, U.K.
