We welcome a new resident this month
Åsa Ersmark (b. 1981 in Stockholm) educated at the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. Åsa Ersmark’s works that are not medium-specific explore the concept of freedom, sexuality and the subconscious’s place and explosiveness in a patriarchal and consumption-driven age. She works with film, installation, photography, handmade objects, animation and the human body. Objects and processes appear as moving sculptures in works that are both “static and mobile, sculptural and animated, physical and transitory”. Working across sculpture and video installation, her work has been exhibited at The Modern Museum in Stockholm, Tribeca Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Oberhausen Film Festival, Färgfabriken in Stockholm, and the Gothenburg Art Museum among many others. Ersmark received her MFA from The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm and grants from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Studio Grant, City of Stockholm, and The Royal Institute of Art among others. During September-November 2018, Uppsala Art Museum will hold a solo exhibition of her work.
