In his work, Emo de Medeiros orchestrates participative experiences through collaborations with artisans or the use of digital imagery, video, Near Field Communication, music composition and ‘Performance/Installations’. In doing so, he develops strategies to explore ‘Contexture’, a fabric of complex interactions and flux between time and space.

De Medeiros holds a degree in Anthropology from Ecole Normale Superieure, followed by Ecole des Beaux Arts —both in Paris— and the Massachusetts College of Art, U.S.A. He has exhibited or performed at Dakar Biennale, Senegal; Marrakech Biennale, Morocco; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; The Arts and Culture Centre Vallois, Benin; and Salon de Monrouge, France. He was guest artist at Salon du Dessin, Paris and That Art Fair, Cape Town.
