- Emma Cocker is a writer, artist and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art. Operating under the title Not Yet There, her enquiry focuses on exploring models of (art) practice and subjectivity, which resist or refuse the pressure of a single or stable position by remaining willfully unresolved. As a practice-based enquiry, Not Yet There is shaped by an interdisciplinary, hybridized approach, operating restlessly along the threshold of writing/art. Whilst embracing the potential of the essayistic (as a tentative attempt or trial), Cocker’s practice also includes experimental, performative and collaborative approaches for producing texts about, parallel to and as art practice. Processes of condensation, extraction, fragmentation, listing, footnoting, cross-referencing and appropriation are adopted as critical methods for art-writing, alongside the cultivation of a serialized form of prose-poetry collectively entitled Condensations.
