A smashing smash smashed it up real good. Potato mashes never knew that it could be done this way, in that way they would have tried it years ago! Such a shame, but no blame. This is not a game. It’s all the same. Similarly the watermelons have forgotten to eat breakfast, it makes them kranky, wanky and spanky. Nobody told them about consent. There is a new word between yes and nose, it’s called cheek and the new consensus is that you turn the other cheek around, cheek it out. If you do so, someone might smash it.


Emmeli Person is an artist working within the framework of curatorial and critical learning practices. As an artist her work extends itself within the expanded field of new materialistic thinking and embraces a phenomenological approach to the objects we sometimes call art. Her research and practice organizes itself in playful and speculative ways, as it looks at how we collectively can challenge and re-tell our ecological and phenomenological realities.


Based in Stockholm she was recently the Curator of Learning at Index Foundation, where she lead Going to an exhibition in characterParrot School and Index Teen Advisory Board, as well as being a Curator for Film i Samtidskonsten


Emmeli works extensively with artistic and educational platforms and have been a guest lecturer at Stockholm University, Konstfack University for Arts and Craft and Ölands Konstskola. From 2020-22 Emmeli is a participant of the Critical Theory and Art Praxes program at the Dutch Art Institute.
