HILDA AT BAR
Now is the time to say nothing is a series of drawings and paintings and a booklet (online text here), produced during Hilda's residency at BAR. "Walking the city, reading literature from Lebanon and the diaspora, following local news and getting to know the local art scene; this project is my first attempt in Lebanon, of mapping through painting and drawing, in my ongoing research project on perceptions of the present and the past".
Hilda Ekeroth is a visual artist whose recent research is focused on two distinct areas: the cultural history and apparatus of perception—in particular, stories of the present—and a reconciliation and expansion of her work in drawing and painting. She received her MFA at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and studied Cultural Anthropology at Uppsala University, Sweden.
Recent exhibitions include Zico House, Lebanon, Accademia di Romania, Italy, Danske Grafikeres Hus, Denmark and Billboard Festival Casablanca, Morocco.
She is based in Gotland, Sweden and works internationally in solo- and cooperative projects.
