CV SUMMARY/SHORT PRESENTATION
EvaMarie Lindahl is a visual artist based in Malmö, Sweden. Her research driven art projects are situated in the intersection of Critical Animal Studies, the visual arts and activism. Lindahl has developed an art practice that encompasses large-scale graphite drawings as well as text-based performance work and collective self-organisation. Through her projects, Lindahl is recurrently questioning the writing of art history from an anthropocentric and patriarchal position by correcting, re-writing and imagining new (art) histories. Lately this has developed into an art practice that could be called art history activism. In her current work, she is questioning the human-animal dichotomy and addressing the human habit of oppressing other animals by using them as resource and material in art production.
Since 2015 Lindahl is a part time doctoral student at The Centre for Human Animal Studies at Edge Hill University outside of Liverpool, UK. Her research project Re-Framing the Non-Human Animal in Art Production explores how non-human animals are framed within both cultural and physical frames, and investigates ways of challenging these frames through artistic practice while re-drawing, re-sizing and re-writing classical oil paintings in which non-human animals participate. In this process, anthropomorphism is used as a tool for imagining new readings and histories.
Lindahl is represented by Stene Projects and in 2008 she earned her Master of Fine Arts at The Malmö Art Academy in Sweden. Her work has been exhibited and performed at several institutions such as the National Gallery of Denmark, Bonniers Konsthall, The Art Museum in Ystad, Malmö Konsthall, Uppsala Art Museum, the Bishop’s House in Lund, Stene Projects Gallery, Gallery Ping Pong, Kvinnohistoriskt Museum and Malmö Museum. She has been awarded project and working grants from the Swedish Arts Grants Committee and is represented by several private and public collections. Lindahl is part of the working group of UNICORN artists in solidarity since 2015.
Lindahl has been frequently engaged as a teacher at several universities and art schools as well as on panels related to her fields of interests.
