Galleri Riis

Christine Ödlund

Christine Ödlund's work deals with the ability to transcend language barriers between people and plants and barriers between the invisible and the visible. In elaborate images Ödlund develop an intriguing and refined imagery that seeks to visualize extensive processes such as chemical and astronomical phenomena. Ödlund's fine-tuned sensibility and poignant accuracy explore phenomena and worlds that humans, with our limited senses, scarcely can perceive. Her interest in science as well as esoteric knowledge allows for surprising connotations. Ödlund works with both visual and audio art. She received her artistic education from Electroacoustic Music, EMS, Stockholm,Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Video Department, Stockholm and the Academy of Photography, Konstfack, Stockholm.
