TEXTRUM

TEXTRUM is a project conceiving text on going since 2019. It is a parallel writing process with Berlin based artist Freja Bäckman. Our texts gravitate around topics on the structures of societies and social interactions. In the end of 2019 we  meet in a residency at NKF in Stockholm and processed texts and also gave a workshop with artists Ulrika Gomm, Sille Storihle and Elske Rosenfeld.

Statement

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.
