Oslo Kunstforening is proud to start off the new year with a solo presentation by Lina Selander. Please join us for the opening of her exhibition «Repeat After Me», Thursday 19 January at 6-8 PM.

Lina Selander is one of Sweden’s most groundbreaking moving image artists. Her films and installations are often based on historical breakpoints – a liminal space in which a system or a physical space has collapsed and something new is taking shape; the transition from analogue image making to digital, the collapse of political or economic systems. Each work consists of a pictorial world woven from a mix of historical and fictional observations.

Selander’s artistic work revolves around a fascination with the phenomena and technologies that enable image production and documentation. Her work returns to the question of image as memory, imprint and representation. The exhibition presents three video works made in collaboration with Oscar Mangione. This is Lina Selander’s first solo exhibition in Oslo.

Lina Selander (b. 1973) lives and works in Stockholm. Recent solo exhibitions have taken place at Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts), London, 2015; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, 2015; VOX – Centre de l’image contemporaine, Montréal, 2015; Index – The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm, 2011. She has participated in international group exhibitions such as the Kiev Biennale 2015; Seoul Media City Biennale 2014; Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, 2014; Manifesta 2012 in Genk, Belgium and Bucharest Biennale 2010. Lina Selander held a solo show at Kunsthall Trondheim in 2014. She represented Sweden at the Venice Biennale in 2015.

Oslo Kunstforening is supported by the City of Oslo and Arts Council Norway.
