Emma Hartvig


Emma Hartvig (b.1990) is an artist who is best known for her portraits of women, and her use of self portraiture which centers around the idea of a persona. The work is highly influenced by her desire to understand the parallels between solitude, intimacy and identity - through her use of the sculptural, performative and theatrical. The figurative elements of her work is an ongoing study of the power and complexity in female representation with an attempt to remove stigma and sexualization around nudity, and put focus on women's own self-perception.

Born and raised in Sweden, Hartvig moved to London where she completed a BA in photography at University of the Arts. She lived in Berlin, Paris and Copenhagen, and eventually settled in Vienna, where she works on long term projects exploring different female narratives.
