CV SUMMARY/SHORT PRESENTATION

(english) EvaMarie Lindahl, PhD, is a visual artist and researcher based in 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 questioning the writing of art history from an anthropocentric and patriarchal position by correcting, re-writing and imagining new (art) histories. 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.

Lindahl earned her doctoral degree at Edge Hill University (UK) at The Centre for Human Animal Studies in 2022. Her doctoral research project titled Resistance Within the Museum FaunaChallenging Anthropocentrism through Counter Art Histories and Non-Human Narratives is a practice-based thesis within visual art and critical animal studies that is engaged in decentring the human in art history in favour of non-human animals.

Lindahl 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.

KORTFATTAD CV/PRESENTATION

(swedish) EvaMarie Lindahl, PhD, är verksam som bildkonstnär och är baserad i Sverige. Hennes researchbaserade konstprojekt befinner sig i skärningspunkten mellan kritiska djurstudier, bildkonst och aktivism. Lindahl har utvecklat en konstpraktik som omfattar storskaliga blyertsteckningar så väl som textbaserade performanceverk. I sina projekt ifrågasätter Lindahl ständigt skrivningen av konsthistoria från en antropocentrisk och patriarkal position genom att korrigera, skriva om och föreställa sig nya (konst)historier. På senare tid har detta utvecklats till en konstpraktik som kan kallas konsthistorieaktivism. I hennes pågående arbete ifrågasätter hon dikotomin människa-djur samt diskuterar människors vana att förtrycka andra djur genom att använda dem som resurs och material i konstproduktion.

Lindahl innehar en doktorsexamen från Edge Hill University (UK) som hon tog vid The Centre for Human Animal Studies 2022. Hennes forskningsprojekt med titeln Resistance Within the Museum Fauna – Challenging Anthropocentrism through Counter Art Histories and Non-Human Narratives är en avhandling inom konstnärlig forskning och kritiska djurstudier som använder sig av antropomorfism och empati för att skriva och framföra konsthistorier där icke mänskliga djur står i centrum.

Lindahl innehar en master i konst vid Malmö konsthögskola sedan 2008. Hennes verk har ställts ut och framförts vid flera institutioner så som danska Statens museum för konst, Bonniers Konsthall, Ystads konstmuseum, Malmö konsthall, Uppsala konstmuseum, Biskopshuset i Lund, Stene Projects Gallery, Galleri Ping Pong, Kvinnohistoriskt museum och Malmö Museer. Hon har tilldelats projekts- och arbetsstipendium från Konstnärsnämnden och finns representerad i flera privata och allmänna samlingar. 2015 var Lindahl med och startade föreningen UNICORN artists in solidarity. Lindahl är frekvent anlitad som lärare vid flera universitet och konstskolor samt paneler kopplade till hennes intresseområden.
