On Friday Oct 25th IFP will host a talk with artists Linnéa Carlsson and Wen Fang.
Linnéa Carlsson lives and works in Malmö, Sweden. Her sculptural works investigate as diverse subjects as tourism, creativity, gender, and production in the global market, and often in a historical perspective. Though seemingly direct her works often leave the viewer with no answers to the questions raised. She will probably talk about a tourist called Conny Olsson and a Sculpture with no Organs, and perhaps some other things.
Chinese artist Wen Fang was born in Beijing and studied photography at the Photography and Sound Engineering School (ENS) of Louis-Lumière in Paris. Her works revolve around themes of social equity and gender, and often involve objects crafted by impoverished women in the Western remote areas areas of the Chinese countryside. Her collaboration with Ningxia Hundred Flowers Cooperative is partly a reflection how an artist through their status and perspective can nurture more social and economic independence among these women.
