Statement

Liv Strand, a visual artist immersed in how processes of understanding can be shaped. How can art carve a woodiness out to become table? Art is for me a practice for physical materials to think with along with language. Where processes as performances is contiguous to matter, forming suggestions in subjective precision. Some ongoing collaborations function as capacities for negotiation, concerning ways of doing together, and the topology of hierarchies. Forms and concepts in installations, and in workshops, to be played and perverted.

Liv Strand is based in Stockholm, and sometimes Berlin. 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. Video work is available through the distributor Filmform.
