Bio + Artist statement

I am a Swedish an artist, writer and teacher who works at the intersection between documentarism, art installation and sociological investigation, through media like text, video, photography and performance. In my latest research-based project Life in 2.5 dimensions I analyse the increased incidence of emotional, performative and aesthetic labour, especially with focus on the Japanese experience-economy with relationships for rent, through documentary field work as well as work-theory. Currently working on the new project The Artist Travelogue, an investigation into the meaning of travelogues and travelling for the artist identity. Alumn from Whitney Independent Study Program, New York, 2012. Master in Fine Arts from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm 2011. Have run several artist run initiatives and collaborations such as The Drinking Brothers, The Unsecurity Principle and 0s+1s Collective. I write art criticism and comment cultural politics for Swedish daily paper Dagens Nyheter, Kunstkritikk and other publications. In 2020, I was deemed qualified as a professor by experts during an appointment procedure at Umeå Art Academy.
