The Weave Reader, 2022

My card game The Weave Reader is now for sale online at Science fiction-bokhandeln and at World of Boardgames!

UMEQUEER is a banner and a performance, it is a map and a script weaving queer memories from Umeå. The work is a celebration of the queer community that over time has populated the city—its connections, its idiosyncrasies, and its ever-growing ever-changing paths.

FEMINIST HISTORIES, 2019 23/8-17/11  

 Judith Slaying Holofernes will be shown as part of the exhibition Feminist Histories at The São Paulo Museum of Art. "The exhibition will be divided into two broad sections. The first, Histories of women, includes works from several regions, styles and pictorial genres, from the 16th to the late 19th century, including portraits, still lifes and landscapes, aside from historical and religious scenes. As dialogue and counterpoint, feminist histories will bring together artists from different nationalities who are working in the 21st century with feminist ideas or in response to them. The exhibition will be organized around thematic axes with works of different techniques that attempt try to cast a critical eye on the history of women and feminisms themselves, reflecting on future and imaginary projects that contemporary feminism proposes."
