Maria Safronova Wahsltröm

Over the last few years my practice has shifted its focus from the image of body as a vessel for individual psychological experiences and their physical manifestations, to the body of our society. This is the social body as a vessel which we as individuals share permanently and inevitably. Issues of relations between collective identity and individual formation - the possibility for independent constructions of paradigms in interdependent relations and social boundary maintenance form the main field of my interest.
From a background in classical painting, I moved into the field of sculpture and installation where I seek juxtapositions of conceptual and visual form translated through material and space.
