Emma Bernhard – Failed Geometry

A warm welcome to Emma Bernhard’s second solo exhibition in Sweden. In her new exhibition at Erik Nordenhake, three large scale works on canvas from her series of sculptures and paintings titled ”Failed Geometry” will be on display. The works, while concrete in appearance, reference topics such as heredity and environment, dependency and society, drawing much on Foucault’s thoughts on the matter and recent findings on human evolutionary biology.

Born in Stockholm 1981, Emma Bernard received a BA in philosophy at the St. Louis University in Madrid, a BA in painting at St. Martins, London, and a BA in sculpture at Wimbledon College of Arts, London.
