Anna Viola Hallberg is a Stockholm (SE) based artist who works from a project-based method using multidisciplinary structures. Photography, video, sound, and text are used for installations or interventions. She is a socially and politically engaged artist interested in innovative public and collaborative practices.
Hallberg also works as a curator, organizer and lecturer.
"My works are time and site sensitive, they are approaches to insert disruptions in predominant narrations. My method is often research oriented, situating a select group or topic to intervene in a process with to dismantle social or geopolitical contingencies. It does not explore objectivity as philosophical reson, it is rather based in responsiveness on personal or collective experience of a society based trajectory to open up for new discursive contexts.
In this essence I see art as a site for elasticity, for critical dialogues, for doubt, for attempts for reestablishing a sense of direction or rhythm and yet to disengage with conformity. I see my practice as a critical tool to reveal covert layers in society and explore the dimension of art as a reflective ground for consciousness of shared space, and resource, from a vantage point committed to society as a public entity."
