Nina Svensson, Twin Forest, refined and defined by gifts, 2020.

  • Residency period: Spring 2023
  • Neringa Forest Architecture Residency

Nina Svensson is an artist based in Torsåker and Stockholm. Her artistic practice focuses on social processes where attentive and observant negotiations can make visible the distribution and valuation of different forms of capital and ownership in contemporary society. Her methods entail a long-term presence-to-place approach, but also the development of trust and a space for meaningful artistic investigations, based on co-operation and co-creation with people connected to the topic or location in question. Her work is often placed outside the traditional artistic sphere. She is now working with the idea of Friendships, an exchange of knowledge, historical experiences between forests in two countries. Very much like the political exchange programs looked like, well-established twin-town programs around the world. Part of the work will be shown this autumn in a group exhibition at Södertälje Konsthall, Art & Life in Critical Zones.
