LINA SELANDER (b. 1973) lives and works in Stockholm, Sweden. Lina Selander works mainly with moving images in film and video, but also with photography, text and sound. Her works are often installations where these different medias and components converge and interrelate to one another. She is interested in the image’s ability and lack of ability to reproduce time, experience and memories and she explores how different narrative forms and techniques transform and change a story. Her works investigate film as medium, examining its possibilities and limitations as form of expression, and they often raise questions about history and authenticity. Selander’s work has been shown at Index, The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Bonniers Konsthall, Moderna Museet and in international group shows, biennales and festivals, for example in the Manifesta 9 in Genk, Bucharest Biennale 2010, Institute of Contemporary Art in London, The Netherlands Media Art Institute in Amsterdam and Transmediale 05 in Berlin where she received an honourable mention from the jury
