Carla Ahlander (SWE)

Carla Åhlander mainly works with photography and uses the media as a tool to present everyday life as miniature events and structures in panoramic land- or cityscapes. The immediate situations Åhlander is attracted to and documents in her photographs are rather subtle appearances of power relations and systems of order – in all shades and from the vocabulary of everyday life – situations where something is about to happen or could happen, taken from a multiple of contexts, often with no beginning or end in narrative terms. Carla has recently participated in Immortality, TENT - Center for Visual Arts, Rotterdam (2009), Police the Police, Biennial for Young Art i in Bucharest (2010), Touched, Liverpool Biennial (2010), Worlds apart, Galleri Thomas Wallner, Simris (2012), Italiens, Italian Cultural Institute, Berlin (current).
