Artist talk: Sanna-Lisa Gesang-Gottowt (Sweden)
Political and without borders is how you could describe Sanna-Lisa — and with an attitude that doesn’t call everthing her grandmother.
This is how the artist describes her style:
“I usually mix mediums and sometimes include found objects for their symbolic value. In general I am attracted to and use a lot of texture, colour and shape. I always have a social and/or political message but it can be hard to decipher. To sum it up I guess my style is a socio-political discharge of colour and texture”.
There is no stagnation around Sanna-Lisa either, and soon she is opening up a public space gallery in Stockholm. The gallery (Galleri Fotfolket) is being built already and will have its first show in May 2012 – with an exhibition consisting of a number of pedestrian powered boxes. And that is something to be excited about!
