Emma Leach is a London-based artist working primarily with text. Her works include observational writing about real events and short fiction. Her narratives are often set in sites that are undergoing some kind of transition, and topics include the shift in power from one person to another. Previous works have been shown in galleries, distributed in newspapers and transmitted by radio. In 2013, her short story The Moon Speaks was printed in an exhibition catalogue for Hermes’ lack of words (Pub: Artspace, New Zealand).

Emma is also a freelance project manager and curator, working with other artists to realise their ideas. She currently works with visual art festival Whitstable Biennale, artists Lundahl & Seitl and Adrian Heathfield who writes on, curates and creates performance.
