Lotta Antonsson: I Am A Woman
Swedish artist Lotta Antonsson’s recent work recalls her fascination with the late 1960s and ’70s, in a style “where documentary and fiction blur in a merging of social and sexual revolutions,” according to the essay by Patrik Andersson. From a process that utilizes techniques of collage and montage emerges a very personal way of looking at the ephemeral nature of things, whether printed matter (magazines, books) or natural objects (shells, minerals, driftwood). Antonsson’s analogue cuts and repetitions seize upon the allegorical potential of image fragments, freeing fashion and erotic photography in an exploration into the gendered side of this clichéd history.
