Klara Lidén


Klara Lidén (born Sweden, 1979) is a Berlin-based artist, architecturally trained, and known for her film and built installations. Exclusively for the Serpentine Gallery, Lidén has produced a print based on the view from a video recorder that she held on her shoulder as she rode a bicycle into the River Seine in Paris. Purposefully degraded, the digital image appears to be an archival photograph. Reminiscent of Georges Seurat's Pointillist paintings, it draws directly from a work included in the Serpentine's exhibition, entitled Toujours Etre Ailleurs (Always To Be Elsewhere), 2010.

Past exhibitions include Unheimlich Manöver at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, 2007, and a presentation of her video work at the Hayward Gallery, London 2007, with solo exhibitions at Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York in 2008, 2006 and 2004.
