About the artist

Malin Pettersson Öberg

Malin Pettersson Öberg is a Swedish visual artist working in several media. She holds a master’s degree in Fine art from Konstfack University in Stockholm and has studied experimental cinema at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Pettersson Öberg uses an essayist format to explore how we perceive time and describe places and cultural or national identity. In a world of constant translations, she collects appropriated images and texts and assembles them into new flows and entities.

With a recurring theme of reinterpretation and revaluation, she attempts to question our perceived stability and challenge existing orders and points of view. Since 2007 Pettersson Öberg has taken part in numerous screenings and exhibitions in Sweden and abroad. She is a teacher and co-organizer of the studio space Slakthusateljéerna in Stockholm since 2010.
