Emily McMehen

Emily McMehen is a Canadian artist and writer living and working in London.  Her video work is concerned with actual representations of noumenal truths, often seeking points of reference in reality that correspond to implausible legends or myths, or manifestations of spiritual faith within a community and acts of religious ecstasy.   Emily is interested in collaborative methods of filmmaking and storytelling that cross cultural boundaries, and her directorial technique benefits from the expanded creative process that results from sharing control of the outcome with her films' participants.  Emily is currently working on pre-production for two film projects in Haiti, and is developing projects in England, Mongolia and the Canadian Arctic.  She is currently completing a PhD in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
