More information

Nina Bondeson contributed a poetic essay for Daniel EKTA Götesson’s Associative Drifts, published by LL’Editions in 2021.

Nina Bondeson was born in 1953 in Stockholm and lives and works in Mölndal, just outside Gothenburg. She was educated at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm from 1983 to 1988.

Bondeson is fundamentally a graphic artist but works freely across media and on various materials. She paints on wood, furniture, discarded everyday objects, sculptures, and directly on walls. Additionally, she embroiders on canvases, clothing, and dish towels. In Bondeson’s unique and bustling visual world, the absurd and playful mix with the violent.

Since her debut exhibition at Dr. Glas in Stockholm in 1989, Bondeson has regularly exhibited both in Sweden and internationally. She is represented in several Swedish museums, including the Gothenburg Museum of Art, the National Public Art Council, and numerous municipalities, county councils, as well as private collections.

Parallel to her artistic career, Nina Bondeson engages in writing, sometimes integrated into her works and also in texts about art, such as ‘Tiden som är för handen; om praktisk konsttillverkning’ (together with Marie Holmgren). Bondeson has also contributed to several anthologies, books, and journals, often in critical reflections on the relationship between art and theory, as she expresses it:

‘A theoretical interest in art creation can be very rewarding and interesting, but it is not a prerequisite for practice. It has been important for me to remind myself and others of that.’

Nina Bondeson contributed a poetic essay for Daniel EKTA Götesson’s Associative Drifts, published by LL’Editions in 2021. The experimental artist’s book also contains an essay by journalist Henrik Björk Wigartz. The book is comprised by a series of unbound photographs, mainly snapshots taken in the streets, and fragments from the artist’s studio wrapped in silk paper, printed with the title and essays, all housed in a foil embossed and hand assembled rigid box. The book was released in a trade edition, and in a special edition with a unique cover, including an original drawing by the artist.
