Emma Dove

Emma Dove works with moving image, photography and sound to make films and installations, often collaborating with other artists, composers, choreographers, academics, scientists and community groups. She is based in rural Dumfries and Galloway.

Previous projects have explored relationships to place, the natural world, migration, notions of home and personal memory, engaging with local communities to create immersive works layering long-take video, voices and field recordings. Completed works have been presented at exhibitions and festivals in the UK, Italy, Sweden, Romania, Brazil, Mexico and India.

More recently, Emma has developed new work around themes of the body, birth, death and resilience which has included cross-cultural research between Scotland and Japan.
