Katarina Eismann (Sweden)
- October 25, 2019 – November 22, 2019
Katarina Eismann (Sweden) is MAWA's artist in residence from October, 25 - November 22, 2019.
She will be using Platform Gallery at 100 Arthur St. as a studio/lab from October 28 – November 16. Drop in to see her works in progress and finished interactive video installations.
Katarina Eismann considers each artwork a sphere of fragments, with unlimited connections and boundaries, in which the body is integral, changing the environment by movement or just pure presence. While in Winnipeg, she will be developing photos, prints and drawings and dealing with their relationship to space and immersive video. Eismann teaches at Stockholm University of the Arts and Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Stockholm), and exhibits extensively throughout Sweden and Europe. She comes to MAWA through a residency exchange with AllArtNow, originally based in Syria and now located in Sweden.
