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.

Liv Strand is based in Stockholm. She’s co-initiator of Salon Material, running since 2011, and of feminist sound art project Larm (2004-08). She works at EMS and is a member of Fylkingen.
