Charlottenborg Art Talk: Snövit Snow Hedstierna

Snövit Snow Hedstierna

23.05.2018 -

Snövit Hedstierna will visit the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg for an inspirational talk about gender, power structures, trauma, memory and working with oral history as a foundation of art making. Relational structures, traditions and conventions within the rituals of sharing stories and bearing witness, and the solidarity created between the participants based on the conditions, experiences and concerns being shared.

During 2014-2018 Snövit Hedstierna created the work An Issue of Structure, a project that confronts dysfunctional and failed gender structures within Scandinavia (the region with the highest gender equality according to the WEF’s “Global Gender Gap Report”). 

Carried out over more than 3 years, the process included approximately 250 in-depth interviews with female/queer/transgender/gender-fluid people. Resulting in nearly 6000 hours of audio recordings, based on the participants’ lived experiences that covers misogyny, transphobia and sexual violence among other pressing issues. 

To date, the work has resulted in a series of spatial sound installations, films, performances, a sound archive and the writing of a publication. Hedstierna will talk about this work and others made between 2012-2018 that investigates and questions similar discourses and problematics.

Snövit Hedstierna received her MFA from Concordia University and has aslo been a student at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, Valand Academy of Arts and Konstfack. Her work has been displayed and presented widely at international galleries, museums and festivals including: Manifesta11 (Zurich), PPP/Documenta14 (Athens), Satellite Art Fair (Miami) and the Venice Biennale. For 2018 she is finalizing new pieces for Manifesta12 (Palermo), The Nordic house (Iceland) and Skövde Konsthall (Sweden). Snövit Hedstierna is currently teaching at HDK - Academy of design and crafts, Dalarna University, Linnaeus University, Beckmans College of Design and Forsbergs School of Design. She lives and works between Montreal, Berlin and Stockholm. She is the founder of Pony Sugar Art Gallery and a recurring art and design writer for Cap&Design.

The talk is part of the Charlottenborg Art Talk program and it is arranged in a collaboration between The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Kunsthal Charlottenborg.

The event takes place in Kunsthal Charlottenborg's cinema and the admission is free.
