Konstfrämjandet Norrbotten and Luleåbiennalen inaugurates Flyttzon, a new work by Lena Stenberg.

On Wednesday 17th of April at 11.00, Lena Stenberg's work Flyttzon is inaugurated next to Parkskolan in Kiruna. Welcome to a conversation with the artist about the process behind the site-specific work.

An important thread in my artistry is how the environment, nature and places of residence shape people's identity and living conditions. How the history of the place shapes people. My art has also expressed the human need for protection in life. Against climate, weather, environment and other external influences such as exploitation of land.
