Cecilia Jonsson combines artistic observations of phenomena and the search of poetry in the factual, in order to understand the realm of nature and in what ways humans relate to the ecosystem we are part of. Her installations, sculpture, sound and video works are devised by strategies in which materiality, site-specific navigation and objective research methods are woven together through a personal, subjective experience of contemporary alchemy. Jonsson holds an MA from the Bergen Academy of the Arts and the Nordic Sound Art program and has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Europe, Asia and Australia. Her artistic work has been awarded international awards and mentions such as COAL Art and Environmental Prize (nominee, 2018), Prix Ars Electronica, Hybrid Art (honorary mention, 2017), Bio Art & Design Awards (2016) and VIDA 16.0 Art & Artificial Life International Awards (2nd price, 2014).
