Ida Lennartsson is a Swedish artist based in Berlin. Lennartsson represents a broad understanding of sculpture in different media where the core of each is the tactile handling of the material and its affective possibilities with regard to social constructions of the Other. In her works Lennartsson explores the balancing act between private and collective signs of different systems, biological, psychological etc. - Her attempt is to externalize the complex affects that result from confronting the internalized rejection of the body, its organs and fluids: to shift or set in motion notions of nature and culture.

Ida Lennartsson's personal narrative, where sculptural hand-crafted bodies rich in a variety of combined materials are accompanied with medical contraptions, found furniture derivatives, and displays of moving images. The installation of these elements is usually carefully tailored into the space. There is a certain kind of life here, one that is stripped bare of its skin, yet gently taken care of in the same moment. Fragility is exposed and responsibility is asked for.

Natasja Loutchko (she/they) is an artist, curator and collaborator based in Stockholm.
