BIO


Klara Ström is an artist, writer and performer born 1990 in Tanum, Sweden. She is currently based in Gothenburg where she boths works with her individual artistic practice and as a co-founder and curator of Jennifer Artspace, a non-profit exhibition space with focus on young, experimental art. In 2018 Ström graduated from the master’s programme in Fine Arts at Konstfack, Stockholm and she previously has a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art from Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Her work is text based and she combines her own texts with others, creating banks for possible withdrawals for certain projects. Ström writes prose, poems and songs, using them in performances that take place in scenographic installations where sculptures and paintings serve both as props and as characters in the narratives she performs within. Costume is a big part of her work and creates other characters as alter egos or symbolic figures. Ström uses mythological, religious, historical and contemporary references to build parallel narratives with those we already know. Her works has been exhibited in venues such as Malmö Konsthall, Moderna Museet, Skånes Konstförening, Galleri Podium, Chart Art Fair, Statens Museum for Kunst, Roskilde Festival, Salts Basel, Ok Corral among others.
