An investigation of how the objects we surround ourselves with both represent and influence our personalities, Trängd is a playful series of abstract ceramic objects with anthropomorphic qualities. Somewhere between living entities, sculptures,
3D paintings and interior decorations, each piece is an exploration of what an ‘object’ means when function is taken away from it, and whether something removed from style or purpose can have an emotional dimension.
Born in Kristianstad, Sweden and now living and
working in Oslo, Moa Håkansson holds an BA and an MFA in medium- and material-based art from Oslo National Academy of the Arts, from where she
graduated in 2016. Her ceramic works have previously been shown in Oslo, Fredrikstad, and Copenhagen, making Everything is Connected her first exhibition outside Scandinavia.
