Moa Gustafsson Söndergaard B.1991  Gävle, Sweden

Moa Gustafsson Söndergaard’s work is situated around materials and places we surround ourselves with. She is interested in the memories these places and objects carry with them and how they shape us and our society. Her practice is a combination of studio and field work. She collects materials, images and objects from different places and uses them as a starting point in her work. She explores her surroundings through theories connected to geology and anthropology and examines walking as an artistic method. Both the physical aspect of movement but also the idea of mapping and translating a space with the body.

Her installation based work explores different sculptural techniques combining them in the space she is exhibiting in. Materials that are reoccurring in her work are clay, hemp thread and paper. She is drawn to materials that have a sense of resistance and are easily altered or cast into a shape. Materials that are connected to nature in some way or carry a narrative of their own.
