By deconstructing images and stories of nature, landscape and public space, I explore notions of originality, nature and identity. In a time of anxiety, movement and relocation, I want to investigate inner and outer landscapes. Our relationship with nature is at stake in several ways. What does a home mean at a time of relocation? Can a landscape represent a national identity? And what happens to our identities if we are unable to understand and navigate in these landscapes?
Starting from the site-specific, My Lindh challenges everyday situations and stereotypical constructions. Her works often investigate and deconstruct the image of nature and the common space. Through video, audio, performance and installation, she creates alternative situations that actively involves the viewer. With a both existential and direct address, Lindh encourages using and understanding the common space in alternative ways.
My Lindh (b.1972) 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.
