Lovisa Johansson


Lovisa Johansson is a performance artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. She has been working and exhibiting as an interdisciplinary artist since the beginning of the 90s. Existential themes recur – loneliness, love, birth, death. Lovisa is interested in the interdependence of human beings, and how she, as an artist, can bend the boundaries of normality and thus make our mutual mental space grow. Her work also has a formally structured side, where matter in action elaborates rhythmical patterns. Johansson’s most important collaborator is Wenche Tankred, with whom she forms the WOL performance duo. WOL creates humorous sound acts and living images with multiple meanings, inviting the audience to contribute with their own interpretations. Currently, Lovisa is in the process of organizing PALS – performance art links, an international festival for performance art in Stockholm. Johansson’s daughter is named Klara.
