Jacobsson, Ewa

Installation, visual objects with sound source.

Visual artist, sound artist, composer.
Advanced technique combined with low-tech reflects my interest in the transportation of importance and meaning, existentially or politically, through different medias. Audience, people passing by and chance included.
Sound collecting since the early eighties. I collect visual castaway elements from actual sites, and use materials as marzipan, oil, steel, wire, photo, drawing.
Site-specific installations with visuals, sound and preparation of spaces, pure sound composition and live performance. I work at exhibition and concert spaces and in other contexts, including works for the street and/or involving the audience.

Member of NBK, BOA, NKF, FFF
