Emma Weird is a Berlin based visual artist.
They explore expectations and assumptions surrounding the nude body and aim to liberate this from the patriarchal male gaze, serving as a platform to elevate queer beauty.
Emma works with bold, colorful, acrylics to achieve this. Their work is inspired by the relationship – or lack of – between identities and nude bodies.
Group Show ‘Nebulous’ May 15-30th 2020 by Studio Baustelle
“Nebulous explores the boundaries that separate how people think about and depict the body: a reflection of the fluid areas between our outward appearance and how that conflicts or corresponds with our inner psyche.”
” Emma Weird works with bold colours and still-dripping acrylics in their paintings of the nude body. ‘I AM 10.0’ depicts a nude body viewed from behind .. The position of the body puts into question the nude as it is generally portrayed in art, where the body is viewed as primarily sexual and subjected to the rigid binary of “woman” or “man”. In this piece, Weird examines the tangled and fuzzy threads that connect our identity to our nude bodies. The relationship between bodies and identities is often a very complicated one, especially as one transgresses old binaries and ventures into exciting but lesser known territories. Weird works to highlight these transgressions and elevate queer beauty. “
