Jenny Åkerlund is the second artist in residence in 2023 at Studio PRÁM. She will spend there June and July and her exhibition will be held in the second half of July.
With a starting point in the field of perception Jenny Åkerlund’s practice revolves around aspects of _time and transformation in relation to visual culture. Through the use of disciplines like history of science and astronomy, and with techniques spanning drawing, glass and video, she investigates the impermanent character of the visible in different ways. This field of interest has led her to work on subjects such as human computers (women working in the field of astronomy in the early 20th century), scientific depictions in relation to objectivity, entoptic phenomena (visual effects occurring within the eye itself) and studies of material such as dust.
Åkerlund (b.1984) holds an MFA from Malmö Art Academy. Her work has, among other places, been exhibited at Cage Gallery, Tokyo, Hagströmer Medico-Historical Library, Stockholm, Spazio Display, Parma, Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Galerie L’inlassable, Paris, Goya Curtain, Tokyo and Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Pantin, Paris.
The project is implemented with the financial support of the City of Prague, State Culture Fund of the Czech Republice and the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
