Annelie Grimwade Olofsson

In my work I explore the correlation of industry, society and environment from a material point of view. My aesthetics often quotes the industrial landscape, where testing the boundaries of controlled and self governed expressions is a reoccurring theme.


I see the creative making as a tool for reflecting and imagining future possibilities which evokes curiosity, produce knowledge and challenge human perception of material value. 


My work can be seen as material manifestations, unlike theoretical works which discuss, but do not create Anthropocene objects, which story, asks the observer to decide whether to admire its appearance or acknowledge the ambiguous morality of the processes that created them.


My process typically involves alternative mining, applied experimentation and artistic narration, drawing inspiration from sociological phenomenon, anthropology and bio-geophysics.


Right now I’m inspired by the domestic landscape, materially and conceptually, experimenting with hoover dust, glass beads, ashes from the wood stove, electrical cables etc.
