In her artistic practice, Emma Neha Bobeck (born in Bengaluru, raised in Örebro) explores belonging and the complexity behind adoption. As a transracial adoptee the artist uses her own background to explore bureaucracy, cultural identity and social structures. Disentanglement consists of an adoption archive in combination with a video of the artist in a staged mother and daughter relationship.
Disentanglement exists in a postcolonial context and is in dialogue with ongoing debates on international adoptions in Sweden, the by far greatest adopting country in the world per capita.
