Annika von Hausswolff (b.1967) is one of the most influential photographic artists in Sweden and is well known for her carefully arranged images with a documentary visual expression. In 1993 she was noted for her work ”Tillbaka till naturen” (”Back to nature”), images invokingcrimes scene photographs showing female dead bodies scattered in different landscapes, awaking associations to both death and crime as well as nature romanticism.von Hausswolff’s images are often based on themes such as power and economical structures, spatiality, psychoanalysis and the absence of human presence, though with traces of human activity. Her photographs are charged with a great deal of mystery: often surrealistic and filled with recurring motifs and personal references.
Annika von Hausswolff trained at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design and the Royal Institute of Art.
Kristina Jansson's (b. 1967, Sweden) grand and ambiguous paintings, based on different media, such as film scenes and photographs, often depict dark moods and worrying interiors. For Jansson, the paintings are not just a reproduction of a place or an event, but an event anda reality in itself. They draw the viewer into a protracted “now”, making the position of the viewer somewhat uncertain and explore the very nature of painting and our perception of images.
Kristina Jansson graduated from The Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, in 2001.
