Born in 1965. Lives and works in Holmsund, Sweden.
In her artistic practice, Gerd Aurell works mainly with drawing, performance and film. The sense of place is important and it is always a point of departure. Gerd Aurell is interested in our view on landscape and nature, how society tries to reshape and control nature.
In their collaborative projects, Gerd Aurell and Helena Wikström have been working with art that focuses on urban planning and landscape use, for example Another City is Possible for the 2009 MADE-festival in Umeå. During the course of several years they have worked artistically with the Umeå River Delta, which resulted in exhibitions at Bildmuseet, Umeå, The National Gallery in Prague and the Survival Kit Arts Festival in Riga (2011). The Delta-project also resulted in two films, Kadens and Vadaren, both premiered at Galleri Rostrum in Malmö (2015).
