Emily Greenberg
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Greenpoint



ARTIST STATEMENT: Often relying on appropriated materials, my visual work is an un-making, an intervention into a world characterized by misinformation, “truthiness,” and seemingly authoritative modes of representation no longer valid in an age of rapid information exchange. Spanning printed ephemera, video, sound, net art, and interactive installation, my artworks ask subjects to respond to narrative environments that are incomplete or out of order, where parameters are defined but full content is inaccessible. Much of my work focuses on the politics of memory, the dissemination of information, and the portrayal of current events by major media outlets or prominent commentators. Although these portrayals are also incomplete, they do not allow for a personal narrative to fill in the gaps. My work attempts to create an environment conducive to personal narrative by reorganizing information through cutting, juxtaposition, appropriation, and playful satire. In doing so, the work allows for a personal and subjective narrative within the highly controlled and partisan framework of political discourse. Aesthetics of redaction and restraint are deployed against themselves. The resulting narrative is not cohesive but is an index of calculated responses made both by my initial prompt and the actions of others.
