Curriculum Vitae

Catrin Andersson

Born in Helsingborg, Sweden, 1974. Lives and works in Jädraås/Stockholm, Sweden.



Just like nature itself, Catrin Andersson's art consists of a visual surface with a substantial underlying depth of diverse material filled with history and processes. A surface changed over time, a frozen moment in an ever-changing process: Andersson digs in the layers of history much like an archaeologist and examines developments in the crusts of earth like a geologist. She uses information from scientific studies and presents her research and aestheticizes surveys with different material. The result is beautiful, powerful and mysterious. To penetrate the visual exterior of Andersson's art calls for scrutiny of process and material, just as science is needed to understand how the workings of nature and its temporal changes.
