Primarily taking the form of paintings and sculptures, Jenny Lindbloms practice is an inquiry into the possibilities as well as the limitations of representation, expression and identity. Equally influenced by the aestheticized realities framed/ filtered by the canons of Instagram and art history, her imagery can be described as a constellation of eclectic reactions to contemporary image culture in both approach and aesthetic. By allowing visual and conceptual elements to re-occur in various materials and forms throughout her series, Lindblom activates a close dialogue between the different pieces. The associative ad hoc links she presents, open up a process in which the reading of specific works can be continuously renegotiated by the viewer. Facts blend with fiction as issues of class and gender are addressed, contrasted with a longing for the good life, in fragmented micro-narratives oscillating between seriousness and an ambiguous humour.
Jenny Lindblom (*1981) lives and works in Amsterdam; she was a grantee of the Mondriaan Funds project space at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in 2013.
