Sári Ember

Sári Ember (1985) lives and works in Budapest, Hungary. In 2009 she graduated from Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Crafts (MOME), where she majored in Photography and Visual Communications. During her studies she spent several semesters in the United Kingdom and Slovenia. She took part in many residency programmes in Brazil, Belgium and the Czech Republic. Her works have been exhibited internationally both in solo and group exhibitions for example in São Paulo, Paris, Lodz, Brno and Budapest. In 2010 she was selected to take part in Contretype residency in Brussels. Sári Ember deals with the notions of home, community and heritage. Her works are based on the paradoxical duality enclosed in the exhibited pieces. By displaying simple objects and at the same time continuously redefining classical genres like portraiture, still-life and landscape the artworks address questions about the nature of representation.
