ANGELICA FALKELING (1988)
Angelica Falkeling (b. 1988 in Degerfors, Sweden) is a visual artist and costume designer based in Rotterdam. Via their training as a seamstress, they often depart from textile craft techniques understood as elastic seams, DIY aesthetics as a methodology to solve problems on-site and cross-generational dialogues as the way to speak about the various economies an artistic practice consist of. Through their site-specific installations and spatial collages, they navigate forms and formats via live performance, audiobooks, textile, sculpture, moving image, and text-based works. Their recent research includes the movements of seagulls, cotton production in Uzbekistan, and drag-show culture in Los Angeles. Their work has recently been part of The Hoodie at Het Nieuwe Instituut, and currently A Malmö Trilogy: an exhibition in three chapters at SIGNAL I Center for Contemporary Art.
They graduated from Malmö Art Academy and International Academy of Art Palestine in 2014, and the Piet Zwart Institute in 2017. 2020 they received the Swedish Art Grants Committee, a two-year working grant in 2020 and the Mondriaan Fonds Stipend for Emerging Artists in 2018 and is nominated as a grant holder by Cbk Rotterdam where they explore the relationship between bodies, movement and sport through sculptural means.
