Emily Bates is an artist and photographer based in Amsterdam. Her work explores landscape narratives, rituals and nature’s rhythms.


She was invited to create the video animation Lost Spring. Lost Year, for the inaugural video commission on the facades of the newly renovated Museum W in Weert, Limburg, which opened in the Spring of 2022.

Her photographic work, The sky is glowing with the setting sun, made in Japanese islands rich in shamanistic heritage and dense subtropical forests, can currently be seen within the group exhibition Face-à-Face at MUDAM Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg. The exhibition is a conversation between the collection of Mudam and Saarlands Museum in Saarbrücken, and includes works by de Chirico, Ernst, Leger, Matisse, Moholy-Nagy, Renoir, Rodin, Katinka Bock, Nan Goldin, Alicja Kwade, and Lee Bul, amongst others.
