Ingela Johansson is a Stockholm based artist, born in Kalmar 1976, whose research-based artistic practice often responds to site-specific issues with an interest in social history and collective memory. Her aim is to expose and challenge the political, ethical, or social systems and the history writing about them, all of which control our everyday lives. Her interdisciplinary approach combines various aesthetic strategies and media to create an engaging body of work. She works with film, painting, installation, text and photo.
Her most recent exhibitions, screenings and projects include: Södertälje Konsthall, ArkDes, Stockholm, Göteborgs Konsthall (2020), Moderna museet (2019), Center for Contemporary Art, Riga, National Library of Lithuania, Vilnus (2018), Kunsthall Trondheim (2017), Alternativa, Gdansk, Tranzit Bratislava (2016), Kalmar Konstmuseum (2015-2016), Kunsthaus Dresden, Flutgraben, Galerie im Turm, Berlin (2014), Norrbottens museum, Luleå (2013), Tensta Konsthall, Konsthall C, Bildmuseet, Umeå; Periferic Biennial 8 Iasi (2008).
