Emma Shapiro (b1988) is an American artist and feminist activist based in Valencia, Spain. She holds a degree in Painting from The Rhode Island School of Design ('10) and has received multiple fellowships, awards, and residency opportunities to pursue her artistic and activist work. Upon completion of her degree, Emma pursued a professional career as an artists' model in NYC for 5 years, an experience that deeply impacted her art practice and understanding of the body. Through her use of layered video projection, self portraiture, and repeated encounters with her own image, she deconstructs and questions the meaning of our bodies, how we know them, and what they could be. Her recent move from her home in the US to Europe has triggered a body of work concerning the memory of self, and how we anchor our notion of "self" in memories. She was December 2020 Artist-In-Residence with The Liminal gallery in Valencia, Spain, during which time she explored this concept in video, projection, book-making and photography. She lives happily with her husband and dog, Elbow.
