Why Do It With Things and Other Bodies


Johanna Gustafsson Fürst's practice spans across a wide range of media such as text, performance, object and site-specific installation. Her practice is occupied with how a society's structure and history materialize in its public spaces and how these spaces function or not function in collective processes of transformation in the power structures.

She engages with how everyday-life encounters politics and how this merges into objects and spaces that affect human relationships. Gustafsson Fürst often uses found items and materials that refer to a place and a function, including the specific stories they carry into the work.

In 2017 she received the Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize. Part of the jury's motivation read: "She challenges the materials, their properties and common uses, in order to create an inverted, suspended, not to say unyielding, sculptural otherness."
