Emilie Dalum, b. 1989, Denmark.

Living in Reykjavík, Iceland.


ARTIST STATEMENT


In my creative work, I combine cultural, personal and artistic matters. I am constantly exploring myself through a symbiosis of magic, flaws, fears and love. Together these components shape my understanding of life as a whole. In a world controlled by rationality and ideologies, I feel driven to set a contrast by showing people and places inside and out and questioning all conventions about beauty and ugliness – in life itself and in the aesthetics of the arts.
