Ingeborg Annie Lindahl (b. 1981) develops site-specific installations in various mediums, often working with large-scale chalk-drawings and installations. She explores different variants of the landscape through drawing, both as a research medium, as petroglyphs and vandalism and its position in art history.
In Lindahls work field trips and personal experience materialize into large scale temporary chalk-drawings and installations. Chalk associates with geology, biology and epistemology. It is simultaneously permanent and durational, fragile and dwindling, and manifests changes in how knowledge emerges and the constant transformation of nature, often affected by humans. Lindahl is interested in the landscape of echoes in the sphere of human thought, and explore culture and value in our time in relation to nature.
Lindahl was one of the pioneering students from Tromsø Academy of Contemporary art and finished her BA in 2010 as she simultaneously took an part time producer management program at Harstad University College. After her BA. she relocated to Bergen, Norway to pursue her Masters of Fine art (2012) at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts.
She has received several adwards including VossaJazz-scholarship and the Per Spilling price. In 2018 she was the first recipient of Critics Award from The North Norwegian Art Exhibition for the pice ‘Uforløst’. Her artistic work has been shown extensively, both nationally and internationally. Lindahl is currently deputy in the board for the Arctic Arts Festival.
