Emily Jan is a huntress of objects and stories. She hails from Montreal, by way of southeastern Utah, South Africa, Mexico, and California. Her sculptures and installations recall both the museum and the wunderkammer, combining the found with the handmade, and evoking the faraway and fantastical as well as the everyday. She is guided in her work by the spirit of exploration, kinship, and curiousity. From time to time she writes and illustrates books; you can find them on her website.

During her residency at Elsewhere, Jan created Rangifer – Polyphemus – Polypore, Barley Twist, Stranger Things (Books & Memory) and Little Bear Zoetrope.
