Josefin Tingvall is a textile and crafts-based artist. In her practice, she employs a variety of media to pose poetic and material questions. Exploring concepts by creating and approaching materials nostalgically, Tingvall examines the dynamics of landscape, including manipulating its effects and boundaries. The themes she processes are environments, fragility and change; the role of human beings in our self-fabricated world. In her works, crafts become actions, where the potential to learn and destroy are presented. Tingvall studied crafts and design at Linköping University. She has an MFA from the Craft programme at the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design and was a guest student at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. As an artist, she is in quest of a dewdrop aesthetics, both by collecting and emulating natural ephemeral processes. Her works are based directly on the surroundings and everyday events. By balancing between memories and experiences, she attempts to approach a large number of subjects on multiple levels. Time and memory are always key elements. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, she creates works with the aid of creative game tactics and repetitive narratives. Play, crafts, movement and plot are serious matters: other rules apply in games than in everyday life.
