Born in North Wales (GB), lives in Nuremberg (DE).
Steven Emmanuel's work is predominantly about the act of putting duration into form. These durative incarnations are cultivated through sculptural forms and these forms have their own tangibility and physical life. Labour and meditation are often perversely married to one another in the process of capturing everything and nothing, creating work that congratulates its own stupidity and thanklessness whilst dwelling upon its consideration and its own perceived importance. Emmanuel has used quotidian methods and ideas of duration to try and picture the physicality of nothing and better understand its context within everything.
