Emilee Lord is a visual and performing artist who combines her love of language, her experiential movement practice and the seductive and absurd nature of repetition to create quiet, sparse, and often odd works on paper, installations, and multimedia performances. Her current research explores ideas of place or placelessness, mapping, solitude, and stillness. Lord was born in Lancaster, PA in 1982 after which her family relocated to northern Maine. Her aesthetic is heavily influenced by the windswept snow bound landscapes of her childhood. She received her BA from Bennington College, in sculpture and dance – 2004 and her MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art – 2007. She has been an artist in residence at Vermont Studio Center, Santa Fe Art Institute, Jentel Artist Residency, and SIM in Reykjavik, Iceland. Lord has been a visiting artist / professor at Bard College Early High School, Newark, NJ, Caldwell University, and Pratt Institute of Art. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally including Santa Fe, New York, Philadelphia, Reykjavik, and Toronto. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
