The everyday and the unexpected play important roles in Carin Ellberg’s art. Exploring materials, forms and themes from her surroundings, her works meander and intertwine in a process that take the viewer through wondrous and labyrinthine imaginary worlds. She works with drawing, painting, sculpture, video, performance and installation, always with a predilection for the naïve and playful.
Carin Ellberg lives and works in Stockholm. Her work is represented in a wide range of private and public collections all over Europe. In 2005 she received the prestigious Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Award.
