Emily Pope is an artist based in London. She just finished making a sitcom called 'The Sitcom Show'. She is interested in labour, characterisations of 'the worker', monologues, 'feminist' video art, series making, mainstream and experimental television, social realism and American folk singers (mainly Nanci Griffith) amongst other things. Her favourite books are JUNK by Melvin Burgess, The Divine Secrets of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells, and The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. Her work (sometimes) explores the female comic as a position to subvert and repurpose.
