Johannes_Heldén_löptext.jpegJohannes Heldén (SE)

Swedish poet, visual artist and musician whose interdisciplinary practice takes the shape of poetry albums, installations, performance and digital works.

Signe_löptext.JPGSigne Johannessen (SE)

Signe Johannessen is a Norwegian artist, based in Stockholm, whose sculptures, videos, drawings and performances speculate on hybrid bodies, historical paraphrases and the potential in the posthumous.

Signe Johannessen is one of the founding members of Art Lab Gnesta and her work is often inspired by its specific location. She is interested in the wetlands as ecological resource, and in ancient rituals and finds from graves, as well as in museum collections of bones from domestic cattle. In the newly formed group Hornvännen, several of these practices are brought together. Signe Johannessen has exhibited her work in Sweden as well as internationally. This year she is presenting her art in solo exhibitions at Örebro Konsthall and Oslo Konsthall.
