It has been said that Stockholm-based visual artist Carin Ellberg transgresses many of the boundaries that pertain to our traditional attitude to art. Intimate corporeality, everyday life, perishable and trivial things all find a place in her oeuvre. This substantial artist’s monograph attests to her versatileness when it comes to materials and the manner of expression in her intrinsically feminist production. Sensual forms are used to interpret the social lifeworld and the intimate sphere alike, equating them to internal movements in the artist’s own self. Numerous works spanning Ellberg’s career are presented in this volume, woven together by a conversation between Maria Lind and the artist.
