People who have saved this event:


Swedish-born Karl Holmqvist (1964, Västerås) uses a wide range of formats – poetry readings, installation and sculpture – to bring out the primal qualities of language.


Holmqvist is one of a current generation of artists working with language and text as a sculptural or performative material. Currently based in Berlin, Holmqvist says his work is meant to spark the creative process in the viewer, seeing his art and poetry as a translation of the complexities of contemporary life. He blends poetry with pop music and his texts, composed of anecdotes as famous as they are diverse, exploring the theme of communication and language, are the linchpin of his work.
