Maria Lindberg

Ljushult , Sweden

Maria Lindberg was born in 1958, in Ljushult, Sweden. She lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Lindberg’s work is manifested in the observation of the seemingly unassuming events and happenings of every-day life. Language and an underlying humor—alternately dark and subtle—play a central role in Lindberg’s art. She works mainly with drawing and painting, but also with photography, collage and performance with parallels to the Fluxus movement of the 1960s. Lindberg’s expression is characterized by a paired-down minimalist approach, her works are often multi-faceted and touch upon social norms and structures, as well as on feelings such as intimacy, loneliness and longing.
