Linda Hofvander

Studio grant holder in Stockholm 1 October 2020 – 31 March 2021

Linda Hofvander. Born 1978 in Stockholm. Lives and works in: Stockholm.

I work with analogue photography and look at questions relating to the essence of photography beyond documentary narratives. I revisit the intrinsic elements of photography, such as surface, depth, readings and notions, and the possibility to experience time and space in a flat surface. The spatial portrayal in photography also interests me.  During my residence at Iaspis, I want to examine the sculptural qualities of photography. I plan to work on a defined project and visual material, but without specific goals or intentions. I see this as an opportunity for deeper theoretical and practical studies and going outside my habitual patterns.
