Ingela Ihrman (b. 1985) is a visual artist based in Malmö, Sweden. She graduated with an MFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm in 2012. Her work departs from an interest in desire, identification and temporality as well as the relation between man and other lifeforms often referred to as ‘nature’.
During Jan/Feb 2016 she has been selected as the artist in residence for an Indo-Swedish project, Swamp Storytelling. This is a mobile residency hosted alternately, in Indian and Swedish wetland systems. Ingela will be participating in a month long research-residency on Neil Island in the Andamans. Her interest in temporality will be further explored using the dynamic intertidal system as an observatory. She will be here to share her process and stories of how this experience has influenced her practice – and ideas of the production this might lead to.
Ingela’s recent exhibitions include Tensta Museum: Continues, Tensta konsthall/Stockholms Läns Museum (2016); Survial K(n)it, Latvian Center for Contemporary Art (2015); Becoming by Recalling, Linköpings Konsthall (2015); Tropikerna i Gnesta, Art Lab Gnesta (2013).
