There are many things in everyday life that can be annoying and distracting, chafing, cthat reates boredom and does not provide the stimulus that we want in our lives. Lisa Strömbeck work with, explore and transform, these spaces that disturbs and irritates. For example, traffic noise, ugly fluorescent lights in the ceiling, the stain as you stare at when lying in his bed, or the lack of sun and vitamin D during the winter months.
The exhibition Light Tricks has come to the form of a study of the solar rays and reflections during wintertime. Several works are photographed on location in the gallery, the artist spent several days while waiting for the magic moment when, during the course of half a minute, one small glimmer of light peeped over the rooftops and was beamed into the room with the help of mirrors and prisms. Only the artist was there and experienced a fantastic light and color play for a very short while. These small streaks of hope is now in her photographs. Lisa Strömbecks ability to transform a gray and dismal living at an incredibly sensual and interesting spectacle is here for those who want to see the wonders and mysteries, this is Lisa Strömbecks artistic work method.
Lisa Strömbeck is now also at issue in one of the National Arts Council projects. A group of artists collaborating with SciLife researchers about Hagastaden, researchers at KTH, KI and SU, and Lisa Strömbeck is particularly interested in nanotechnology for casting into light particles in different materials, as well as research on Bioluminescence, ie if bioluminescent animals. Perhaps we will come to see the pioneering work of art that changes the light and dark, night and day, winter and summer, in our neighborhoods and public spaces.
Lisa Strömbeck is born in 1966 in Andrarum. She lives and works in both Denmark and Sweden, since 2010, she is also a teacher of photography at Kunsthøjskolen Holbæk, Denmark.
