Elin Wikström, Sweden

Elin Wikström is known for the 'constructed situations' that she creates in her practice. These involve projects sited within the public domain that question the habits, behaviour and opinions of individuals and society in general. Her projects cause a disruption in the everyday flow of events that force us to reassess our understanding of accepted codes of behaviour, value systems and social conditioning.

Wikström has recently made projects for Futuresonic 2009, Manchester, LIAF 08 – Lofoten International Art Festival, Sala de Arte Publico de Siqueiros, Mexico City and Museum for Contemporary Arts, Vigo.
