Charlotte Åberg is a video artist educated at the art academy in Umeå, Sweden 1990-1995. The images in Charlotte Åberg’s films are inspired by commercials from tv-shop, fashion magazines and Hollywood productions. Charlotte Åberg is interested in how media and junk culture influence a greater and greater part of society, and how their ideals affect the individual. The representation of romanticized love is a constantly recurring thread in the video works. Clichés and beauty adoration in a narcissistic culture are reflected in several video performances.

The exhibition ‘The Dream Garden’ with Lott Alfreds, has been an examination of the employees’ dreams at an eldercare.
