Word Processor is a Research Statement Performance Event forming part of Emma Hart’s Fine Art PhD thesis with the Contemporary Art Research Centre, Kingston University, to be completed in early 2012. The event was developed as the direct result of a three-week period of residency at the Stanley Picker Gallery through January 2012, during which the artist used words as the primary material for the production of the work presented.
Hart’s wider practice encompasses videos, performances and sculptures that ask not “what is it of?” but “what is it doing?”. She has presented solo exhibitions and performances at Cell Project Space, The Whitstable Biennale, Camden Arts Centre, Modern Art Oxford and Matt’s Gallery London, and is currently working on the Film and Video Umbrella/Jerwood Foundation award “Tomorrow Never Knows”.
