Hanna Ljungh

Hanna Ljungh (b 1974) has for a good period of time dedicated her art practice to the matter we describe as land, soil, stone and mountain. Her work reflects upon and questions the fine line between what we call human and non-human forms of existence and the complex relations between them. Ljungh’s works are often fact-based in their core but move away from the factual in their aesthetics to rather relate to the viewers bodily sensations and feelings. In earlier works such as the large scale photographic and sculptural series Vivisections and Specimens Ljungh playfully stages modern day geological excavations. In her film and sound piece, ‘I am Mountain, to Measure Impermanence’, Ljungh portrayed Sweden’s highest mountain Kebnekaise in an almost 6 hour long film and sound installation.

Hanna Ljungh lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Ljungh received a BFA from Parsons School of Design, New York and an MFA from the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Stockholm. In the spring of 2015, Hanna Ljungh was, along with Henrik Håkansson and Åsa Sonjadotter, part of the group show D’ après nature at the Swedish Institute in Paris. Previously, Ljungh’s works have been shown at Fotografiska in Stockholm, Studio Hippolyte in Helsinki, HIAP in Helsinki, Kumho Museum of Art in Soeul, South Korea among others.
