Sculptures, installation and typographic prints makes formal considerations on the notions of ‘nation’ and the Swedish, newly popular, third person pronoun ‘hen’ that do away with the gender distinction.

Liv Strand gives in her art form to the aspiration of re-shaping, for the shapes yet-to-come. Be it in an installation, a text as image or a book, in a guided tour of a space, in the facilitation of a workshop or in a sculpture: the work aims to put up a space for temporary negotiations. Negotiations through art about staying on the surface, how to blend into a striped space or on how the structure of the nation state frames our lives.
