Bror Ida Lennartsson

Artist in residence, Stockholm, 16 May – 27 October 2024

Bror Ida Lennartsson represents a broad understanding of sculpture across various media, where the core is the tactile handling of the material and its affective possibilities with regard to social constructions of the Other. In their works Lennartsson explores the balancing act between private and collective signs within different systems — biological, psychological, cultural. Their attempt is to externalize the complex affects that result from confronting the internalized rejection of the body, its organs, and fluids, to shift or set in motion notions of nature and culture.
