Bio/Statement/CV

Bio

Elinrós Henriksdotter is a Swedish-Icelandic painter, sonic poetry and video artist, writer and sonic poetry performer. Elinrós was born in Sweden and has since 19 years of age moved between Iceland, Norway, Canada, London, Uganda and California. Elinrós took an arts portfolio certificate in Ottawa, Canada, in 2007, and was awarded The Brodie Shearer Memorial scholarship. She has also taken courses in exhibition production, philosophy of science, media production and interior design.

In 2012, Elinrós started working with charitable projects in Uganda, helping victims of rape in Kasese. The interest in helping victims of rape comes from her history of sexual abuse. The charitable projects involve art fundraisers, crowd funding and collaborative work with the established Congolese and Ugandan NGO PEPA. Elinrós recent activities has spanned from poetry performance in London, digital print exhibition at Los Angeles Center for Digital Arts, Cultural charity event in Uganda and a fundraising exhibition in Uganda with funds proceeding to PEPA and a street kids home. Elinrós articles about art and spirituality, as well as poetry, has been published both online and in print, and featured by Artslant.com.

Artist Statement

“Creativity is magical and mathematical, beautiful and arousing, provoking and revealing. It requires me to focus and to be aware, with an open and relaxed frame of mind. When I create I am embraced and kicked by the unknown. It is a fight and a celebration without illusionary boarders.” Elinros Henriksdotter, 2009

Art is my way of actively creating a physical reality capable of merging the invisible and intangible with the mundane and obvious. The language of art helps me to communicate my deepest concerns and wonders in life, deeply hidden due to mental and emotional blockages and social structures, which I can only reach through improvised creativity.

The focus of my work is set on sexuality, nature and spirituality, and the connection between the three. I have personally experienced both incest and rape in my life, and art and spirituality set me on a journey to healing through exploration and communication. My close connection to nature is interwoven with my concern for our view on sexuality today. Not only do I aim to heal my personal wounds, but bring wounds of societal, cultural and psychological paradigms to the surface.

My work is intuitive and improvised, with a mixture of technical preferences and gut feelings. The combination of painting, video, photography, poetry and music use the senses, the intellect and the heart of the viewer as a complex gateway. I hope to activate some unused neurons; fill gaps that the main cascade couldn’t cross, i.e. give birth to new thoughts, ideas and feelings.
