Karolina Erlingsson (* 1980) is a visual artist based in Malmö. She works in film, audio, text, installation and performance with a focus on narrative. Erlingsson is drawn to silent experiences, stories from the margins, or stories about to fade from memory – depicting presence through absence. Many of her works are centered around translations, interpretations and transitions.
Karolina Erlingsson’s work has been exhibited, among other places, at OBRA gallery in Malmö, Moderna Muséet in Stockholm, Lund’s Konsthall and at the Gothenburg International Biennial for Contemporary Art.
During her latest exhibition “Tre ord till dig” at Krognoshuset Lund (February-March 2021), Karolina Erlingsson showed both new and older works that revolved around the themes of language, writing, and memory.
During her long-term collaboration at IAC, Karolina recorded, edited and mastered the audio part of the work EME EMAUTO at the IAC sound studios (2017) and developed her latest video “Camera” (2020). Read more about both works on the respective project page.
