Moa Gustafsson Söndergaard, 29 year old artist living in Malmö but originally from Gävle.She has studied at Akademi Valand in Gothenburg and at Umeå Art Academy.
Moa works mainly with sculpture today but has a photographic background that is present in her practice. She is inspired by different places, personal history writing and heritage and has often that as a starting point in her work.
For Moa, “translating” is a central word in her practice and with her art she just wants to translate places in an attempt to understand its meaning.
For Moa, it feels a bit like a cultural heritage to come to Kultsjödalen, Saxnäs and Ricklundgården.
“My father and my grandfather have been in this environment a lot. So the anchorage to this place existed even before I came here myself.
The best thing about being here at the residence is of course the nature, but also that it releases a peace and a removal from other environments that allows me to work with my art without compromising ”.
