Emma Senft is an artist and furniture maker based in Montréal. Emma holds an MFA in Studio Arts from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2020. She creates furniture and sculpture using wood, textile and decontextualized construction materials. The interaction between our bodies and the built environment inspires her research. Using sculpture and installation, Emma works to use scale and spatial arrangement to prompt the viewer’s awareness of their own body in relation to the work. She is the recipient of grants from Canada Council for the Arts, a Center for Furniture Craftsmanship fellowship and has been a resident at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center. In 2023 she will be an Artist-in-Residence at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, South Korea.
