Born in Britain in 1980 and based in London, installation artist Emma Gibson deals with intimate psychological themes using explicitly materialistic techniques, giving rise to a physical and mental space that quietly pulls apart everyday notions of self and society.

Gibsons rich installation work is built from layer upon layer of common social signifiers, periodically interrupted by the sentimental, the horrific or the otherwise wholly peculiar. These elements eerily function together to lure the viewer into an initial sense of familiarity that gets quickly turned in on itself, throwing up questions of sanity, identity, morality and the self.

Continually exhibiting throughout London and Europe, Gibson shows as a solo artist and also as part of the creative collective The John Hour.
