Moi, Ebba

socially engaged art, art in public space

I mainly work with art in public space, as an artist and curator for various public art commissions. I work mainly with participation and site-specific as a method, where I relate to a public outside the “white cube”. This has resulted in many different initiatives and cooperations, such as the artist-run space Tenthaus and Tenthaus Artist Collective, a space characterised by an open, process-oriented participation in the arts, as well as an ongoing artistic collaboration with artist Anna Carin Hedberg. Participation and interaction have been a central part of my work, with a desire to look at representation in terms of both gender and ethnicity. Participation is for me about inclusion, such the participation of school classes or individuals, in a work of art or the art scene, with a desire to influence the community structures where decontextualising and decolonisation are in focus.
