Ylva Ogland (b. 1974, Sweden) is one of the brightest artistic stars of her generation. From a very early age she developed a unique artistic language, delving into the entire register offered by painting. To Ogland, painting is both a language in and of itself, as well as a state in which she creates quickly and confidently, without sketching or relying on assistance from devices such as projections.
She surrounds herself with and regularly returns to her motifs, which consist of personal mythologies rooted in her individual life experiences. Her paintings often include installation elements and ritualistic performances, as she processes such subjects as memory, death and different states and levels of consciousness, while also addressing the line between art and reality.
She, an Introduction presents a wide selection of works starting with a project in process from March 2015 and going back to 1990 when the artist was 16 years of age.
The book also includes new texts on Ylva Ogland by Sara Arrhenius, Nicolas Bourriaud and Sinziana Ravini, Marina Fokidis and Nicola Trezzi.
