Emma Senftsml

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.
