Maja Lindberg Schwaner


I work from an idea of art as a mirror that briefly fixates parts of contemporary society and reflect them back to it – parts which contain tensions and contradictions, unfulfilled longings.

The heightened attention which is a part of looking at and being with art, makes that possible – to look at these elements separately from the contexts in which they usually appear. Unusual compositions of elements create new connections. It is an uneven mirror, in which there is a selection of elements, a selection which at the same time belongs to a certain place and time but is also personal and woven together with the particular experiences of being a body in this world. Something more happens to the mirrored elements as well. A transformation rather than representation.
