November 2024 residents

Maja Daniels
01.11.2024 – 27.11.2024

“Maja Daniels’ photography-based work includes sociological methodology, sound, moving image and archive materials, aiming to explore the performative function of the image. Her work has been exhibited and published world-wide and she is a lecturer in film at Gothenburg University (HDK-Valand). Maja’s book Elf Dalia (MACK,2019) was nominated for the Aperture-Paris Photo First book Award and won the Swedish Photo Book of the Year Award. Her second book Gertrud (VOID) will be published in 2024.”

“In 2024 (nov), I release my book Gertrud. It explores the role and potential of the image as a myth-making tool; how it can be used to revisit and re-contextualize historical events by connecting them to contemporary and future scenarios. The working method becomes a kind of creative strategy in the process of imagining a new world. I plan to organize a number of talks in Paris about the book, linking its themes of the 17th century witch trials to contemporary issues of populism and immigration.”

Marios Iacovides
Associate Professor in European Union Law, Doctor of Laws
01.11.2024 – 27.11.2024

“I am an Associate Professor of EU Law at Uppsala University and Academy Researcher of the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters. My research focuses on EU competition law and on international economic law. In my work I explore how to provide better protection for humans and the planet through these legal fields, to promote human rights, social justice, and environmentalism. I believe strongly in law’s transformative power, especially when communicated through activism and culture.”

“During this fall I will be a visiting professor at ESSEC Paris Business School and I will also conduct research in the fashion industry as part of my current research project on degrowth and EU law.”

EvaMarie Lindahl
Artist and researcher, PhD
01.11.2024 – 27.11.2024

“I am a visual artist and researcher with a doctoral degree in artistic research and critical animal studies. My art practice includes large-scale graphite drawings as well as text-based performance work. Through my projects, I challenge anthropocentric and patriarchal perspectives by re-writing and envisioning new (art) histories. In my current work, I explore the human-animal dichotomy and confront the human tendency to oppress other animals by utilizing them as resources and materials.”

“My reason for this month-long residency in Paris is the French artist and animal painter Rosa Bonheur. For several years, I have been fascinated by her ability to depict non-human animals, as can be seen in my own artworks and doctoral thesis, where Bonheur has functioned as a colleague across time. During my stay I will visit the original works of Bonheur at museums such as the MusĂ©e d’Orsay, MusĂ©e des Beaux-Arts, and Château MusĂ©e Bonheur as well as draw and write my way closer to her history.”

Anna Maria Persson
Marketing Manager, Visual Communications, Riksteatern
14.11.2024 – 27.11.2024

“Interacting with others inspires me. Crafting communication with clear visual identity and business impact drives me. As Marketing Manager,Visual Communications Lead at Riksteatern my goal is to align Riksteatern’s branding with our values, resonate with our audience. Whether designing websites or enhancing circus event communication, I aim to engage and inspire. I love turning ideas into compelling visual narratives.”

“The application is for a project and collaborations aimed at enhancing communication within contemporary circus and street art. It entails a creative exchange between France and Sweden, in the field of circus arts. The Paris project, in partnership with Riksteatern and Circostrada, will explore new artistic collaborations across borders through workshops and discussions.”

Annika Ă–hrner
Associate Professor in Art history at Södertörn University, Curator
31.10.2024 – 27.11.2024

“My research profile concerns theories of cultural transfer and critical art historiography. My diss. Barbro Ă–stlihn and New York. Art’s Space and possibilities, was defended at Uppsala University in 2010. More recent writings concern e.g. the concept of translation in Andy Warhol’s work, Nordic-Baltic relations in the 1990s art scene, and female positions in Pop Art. I have curated research based exhibitions for Moderna Museet, Göteborgs konstmuseum and Norrköpings konstmuseum and other venues.”

“The purpose of the stay is to complete a record production with the Paris-based, Swedish-French duo LOVERS (releases 2025 on Thanatosis) and more generally to explore the possibilities for collaboration with experimental music scenes in Paris, through meetings with musicians, live venues and other record labels. The aim is to establish potential long-term artistic collaborations and – in a broader perspective – strengthen the link between the French and Swedish experimental music scenes.”
