Presentation

I am a senior lecturer in Art History with a longstanding interest in photography, film, performance, and feminist and postcolonial theory. In the beginning of 2005 I received my PhD with a dissertation on Lee Miller’s photographs from the 1930’s. In the thesis I paid special attention to her rather unknown photographs from Egypt and Romania, and discussed how through these photographs she redefined important parts of her previous photographic practice. One central aspect of my discussion dealt with the concept of ‘ethnographic surrealism’.

My present research focuses on contemporary photography and film in relation to memory and archive. This diversified theme intermingles with notions of borders and passages as well as with emotional states such as intimacy, ambivalence and trauma. I study specific artistic practices while also paying attention to surrounding curatorial contexts. Some of this research originated with solo exhibitions of Zineb Sedira, Walid Raad and Tracy Rose shown at Bildmuseet in Umeå, Sweden during 2010-2011. Other parts of the research take place in Hanoi, Vietnam where I especially focus on the works by Tran Luong, Nguyen Trinh Thi and Nguyen The Son.

Alongside this research I work with the literary scholar Maria Jönsson and together we have investigated the negative emotions of shame, failure and fraudulence within the neoliberal university system of today. In 2014 I was one of the curators of the exhibition Leonor Fini:Pourqoui pas? at Bildmuseet. This curatorial engagement led me into further research of her work.

Previously I was part of the research group “Challenging Emotions”, which formed one of the themes within the interdisciplinary research program Challenging Gender at the Umeå Centre of Gender Studies (UCGS), Umeå University. For a number of years I was also a teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts in Umeå and through this work was involved in an extensive exchange program with the Vietnam University of Fine Arts in Hanoi.
