Lisa W Carlson and Staffan / Selection

Scaled down, dignified and ritual, the artists bring forth everyday events and actions and allow for transformation of the meaning of everyday. With humour and seriousness and around a core of stories, they reflect on achievements, pains and threats. The shape and function of the site are important parts of the work.

Lisa W Carlson (b. 1949 Katrineholm) lives and works in Härnösand. With an artistic background in textiles and graphics, she has recent years worked with video, sound art and performance as a mean of expression. She is interested in social situations and mental processes and examines the femininity in different shapes.
