Artist Profile プロフィール

モア・イスラエルソン Moa Israelsson

Information / Message

I believe in being responsive to the course of work instead of trying to control it. Even if it means staying in something for a long time, or returning to the same theme over and over again. This work method relates to boredom in a way. I welcome this and I am always trying to translate the core of this feeling into my work. Stagnancy and doldrums are to me extremely interesting states that I want to examine in my artistic practice. I want to emphasize what doesn't happen while everything is going on as usual.

Moa Israelsson Forsberg is a visual artist, born in Ljungby 1982. Lives and works in Åkers Styckebruk.
