Sara-Vide Ericson

Sara-Vide Ericson’s paintings are rooted in personal and bodily experiences. Memories of places, moments and inherited experiences are, through the artist’s work process and the characteristics of the material, transformed into a concentrated new reality. Sara-Vide Ericson often depicts herself in her work but doesn’t think of them as self-portraits, rather as if she plays different roles and lends her body to the paintings.

The new book, the most comprehensive publication to date, includes a selection of Sara-Vide Ericson’s oeuvre dating from 2013 to the present, with texts by writer and curator Sara Arrhenius, director of Institut suédois in Paris, writer and curator Daniel Birnbaum, director Acute Art in London and Paris based writer, critic, and psychoanalyst Sinziana Ravini.

Published in collaboration with Galleri Magnus Karlsson, Stockholm, in conjunction with Sara-Vide Ericson’s major exhibition Desire of the Tail at Institut suédois in Paris (17 October 2023 – 18 February 2024).

The texts in the publication derive from presentations given at the conference Material Matters, held at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm on December 13-14, 2018.
