My Lindh
Lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden

About


I am interested in how we co-become, in relation to places, history, memories and dreams we carry with us. Through installation, video, audio, text and performance, I examine shifting positions and room for maneuver in the shared spaces. My practice often involves collaboration and dialogue, and I attach great importance to rhythm, details, materials and working conditions.
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 (Iaspis), Göteborgs Konsthall and Färgfabriken and in international group shows and festivals, such as Kunstverein München, Kluuvi Gallery of Helsinki Art Museum and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. She has realised a number of public art works, self-organized as well as by commission and has initiated and participated in several collaborative projects. 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 and the Working Grant from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
