Ann-Catrin Olsson

By examining the connection between body, space and movement, Ann-Catrin Olsson aims to build a tactile relation between body and material. Inspired by modern and postmodern dance the foundation of her work is the idea of movement as a common experience of being a body. She’s interested in the everyday patterns of movement and the traces of the body’s actions. Sculpture, video and installation have become a way for her to approach choreography and the different materials, such as textile functional materials, wood and aluminum sheet, acts as a placeholder for the human body. While the human body is the recipient and interpreter. Making a form of personal, intuitive reading of another material, and deciphering a language built on bodily understanding and experience. Ann-Catrin Olsson (b. 1984) lives and works in Gävle, Sweden, she received her MFA degree from Umeå Academy of Fine Art in 2015. She has participated in exhibitions at Living Art Museum, Reykjavik, Bildmuseet, Umeå, Gallery CC, Malmö, Konstnärshuset, Stockholm and puntWG, Amsterdam. Her latest solo exhibition was shown at Galleri NOS, Stockholm in 2019.
