INGELA IHRMAN
info

Ingela Ihrman (b 1985, Kalmar, Sweden) lives and works in Malmö. Her work is sparked by the strong emotions of everyday life and a desire to understand, question or express certain aspects of being alive, social and human. It is particularly the pleasures and pain that come with co-existence, autonomy, loneliness and longing for belonging that intrigues her. She has a constant gaze towards the lifeforms and landscapes we refer to as Nature. Her practice includes sculpture, installation, performance, video and writing as well as collaborations within the fields of science, theatre and dance.
