Nordic Pavilion – 54th Venice Biennial, 2011
Fia Backström, featured in this catalog from the Nordic Pavilion of the 2011 Venice Biennale, has enjoyed increasing international acclaim in recent years. For more than a decade, she has divided her time between Stockholm and New York, participating in numerous exhibitions including the Whitney Biennial in 2008 and MoMA 2010. Backström produces events, environments and projects which challenge our habitual notions of what constitutes an exhibition: its institutional context, the dialogue with the audience, and even the works of art that are presented. Occasionally she incorporates works by other artists into her work. She works with structures around politics, authorship and the capacity of images to generate meaning. Contributions by Goldin + Senneby, Tim Griffin and Cecilia Widenheim.
