Sári Ember

Sári Ember  (1985) was born in São Paulo, Brazil, currently 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 various 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. In 2016 she received the Derkovits Scholarship and in 2017 she exhibited at the Abstract Hungary group show at the Künstlerhaus in Graz.

Ember’s 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 still-life and landscape the artworks address questions about the nature of representation. The artist’s birthplace São Paulo, is for her a symbol of fertility and conception, both in a physical and a sacred sense, the duality of which can be traced in her art.
