Emily Waszak


Emily Waszak is a Donegal-based visual artist of Japanese descent. Emily’s work is concerned with building anticapitalist imaginaries as prefigurative resistance to the organised abandonment of the state and capital. Emily has been creating art about mourning in isolation and building ritual imaginaries by envisioning new grief rituals and creating and using the ephemera of the ritual practice of this new, imagined world. Emily’s practice is material and embodied, interacting with waste, found and natural materials collected from sites of industry, abandonment and the natural landscape, weaving thresholds into the unseen.
