Swedish artist, lives and work in Stockholm

Biography

About my art

Meta Isæus-Berlin has since she graduated from the Royal University College of Arts in Stockholm, been known as an artist with a masterly control of the art form of installation. In piece after piece she has demonstrated her expert skill and power by staging objects that, taken together, have created breathtaking images. They are many by now, and we remember them with gratitude and troubled minds – works that have been shown at the Venice and Istanbul biennials, in South Africa, Melbourne, Australia and in Sweden.

Since the large mid-career retrospective at Liljevalchs Konsthall, Stockholm, in the spring of 2006 painting had replaced installation as the chosen form of expression. On canvas after canvas the colours flow and the stories seems endless. Now we get to see the people who perhaps populated the spaces of her installations, or maybe it is a completely different side of the story that has taken centre stage.
