Emma Cocker is a writer-artist based in Sheffield and Associate Professor in Fine Art at Nottingham Trent University. Operating under the title Not Yet There, Cocker's research focuses on the process of artistic exploration and the performing of ‘thinking-in-action’ emerging therein; on models of (art) practice and subjectivity that resist the pressure of a single, stable position by remaining wilfully unresolved. Her mode of working unfolds restlessly along the threshold between writing/art, including experimental, performative and collaborative approaches to producing texts parallel to and as art practice. Cocker's recent writing has been published in Failure, 2010; Stillness in a Mobile World, 2010; Drawing a Hypothesis: Figures of Thought, 2011; Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art, 2012; Reading/Feeling (Affect), 2013; On Not Knowing: How Artists Think, 2013; Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line, 2017; The Creative Critic: Writing as/about Practice, and as a solo collection entitled The Yes of the No, 2016.

Publication: Indifference in Difference

My interview with Helen Chadwick entitled Indifference in Difference (originally published in MAKE magazine, Issue.71, 1996) has been selected for inclusion in the forthcoming publication, The MAKE Anthology: Reviewing the Past and Looking to the Future of Women's Art Practice (eds.) Maria Walsh and Mo Throp (I. B. Tauris, 2014). "With the recent resurgence of interest in the history of women's art practice by art students, art historians and artists in the UK ... the contributions to MAKE are crucial to the framing of current issues in women's art practices ... to set a new foundation for the understanding of women's art practices in the twenty-first century." More to follow soon.
