Emma Dusong

Through the human voice, talking or singing, Emma Dusong looks for experiences that are alive. Like a breath, her voice follows emotions, transforms and becomes for us the living source of an internal movement. Within the architecture of Antti Lovag, she imagines to make the house sing.
