The artist Berit Lindfeldt turns everyday objects into abstract art. Welcome to an exhibition with this year’s recipient of the Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize, and experience her innovative, multifaceted sculptures.

On a visit to Iceland in 1996, the sculptor Berit Lindfeldt (born 1946) started collecting objects and materials, since she was unable to bring along any art supplies. So, she began working with whatever she could find in the surroundings.

Since then, Lindfeldt has continued using bronze, cement, plaster, wood, iron, rubber and foam to combine and fuse ordinary objects into abstract, yet often strangely familiar, manifestations.
In Lindfeldt’s practice, form and content meet in brilliant and often unexpected ways.

Numerous public sculptures

Berit Lindfeldt has received many commissions for public sculptures all over Sweden. One of these was the monument over Astrid Lindgren, the “Källa Astrid” fountain (2007), which now stands outside the culture centre Astrid Lindgrens Näs in Lindgren’s native Vimmerby, Småland.

She has also exhibited internationally and in Sweden. Recent Swedish exhibitions include “Tillvarons kant” (On the Edge of Existence) at Liljevalchs in 2014, “Insidor och Utkanter” (Insides and Outskirts) at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2020, “Barmark” (Bare Ground) at Elastic Rural in 2021, and “Värme/Energi” (Heat/Energy) at Kummelholmen in 2021.

Curator: Annika Gunnarsson
