My Lindh (b. 1972) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Starting from the site-specific, Lindh operates in existential and everyday levels to question concepts of the city, nature and shared space. Using video, sound and installations she challenges everyday situations and stereotypical constructions in order to discuss how slow and barely noticeable but radical changes affect our view on nature and national identity. Her work invites to active participation and exploration of one’s own room for manoeuvre in shaping alternative ways of understanding.
My Lindh holds a MFA from Konstfack University in Stockholm. Her work has been shown at Moderna Museet, the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists (Iaspis), Göteborgs Konsthall and Färgfabriken and in international group shows and festivals, such as Kunstverein München, Kluuvi Gallery of Helsinki Art Museum, the Imago Mundi Collection in Venice and the international Short Film Festival Oberhausen. She has realized a number of public art works, self-organized as well as by commission and has initiated and participated in several collaborative projects. She has regular assignments as a teacher and guest critic at Konstfack University in Stockholm, Södertörn University in Stockholm, Nordic Art School in Finland, Transit Stockholm, University of Dance and Circus (DOCH) in Stockholm and Gothenburg Academy of Music and Drama. She has also received a number of grants such as the Stockholm City Culture Grant, the Martin Emond Grant from the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts, the Kulturbryggan Grant and The Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Program for Visual Arts.
