Emily Mulenga

I use a variety of media including video, digital media and online space, including the avatar-based chat metaverse ‘IMVU’ to explore ideas around the body, the self, race, and sexuality. Often using various incarnations of my own image – digital or otherwise – I explore ideas based around the Black feminine experience in the internet age, with a view to utilising the supposedly democratic nature of online space as a platform for the gendered body of colour, allowing for new possible futures to be explored. I take an intersectional approach to issues and am passionate on questions around social justice and inclusivity.
