Swedish born artist Gunilla Josephson lives and works in Toronto, Canada, since 1990. She holds a BA in Social Sciences, and MFA from Stockholm University and Stockholm College of Art and Design. Josephson’s art practice has evolved through scenography, to installations involving super8 film projections on linen and grass, to sculpture using wax, felt and latex, and the last 13 years to video and its installation. Always working from desire and in part letting the material decide the form, Josephson explores elements of womanhood seen through the limitations, expansions, distortions, truths and lies of a complex looking glass, created mainly from time, memory and personal experience. She consistently works in a way that exploits unbridled emotion with the aim to challenge the accepted conventions of art as an entertainment that is well behaved. Josephson’s more recent exhibtions were at Cinéma de la Plage, Hauteville sur Mer in France in 2010, at Mac Donald Stewart Art Centre in Guelph, Ontario, for The Toronto Images Festival at Trinity Square Video, for the Festival les Boréales in Caen, France, at The Museum for Contemporary Art in Montreal, at the Swedish Cultural Centre in Paris, The Toronto Images Festival; at the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris and at the Sydney Film Festival in 2004. gunillajosephson.com
