Nature Is Out of Control
The work ‘Nature Is Out of Control’ relates to our colonial heritage and human beings’ often ignorant relation to nature. Accidentally or intentionally, we relocate animals, plants, and other organisms from their natural habitat. In their new environment some, like the Yellow Skunk Cabbage, become invasive, negatively impacting native biodiversity, ecosystems and, in the end, our own well-being.
Through her artistic practice Anna Sofia Jernryd examines conventional ideas concerning representation, identity and classification as well as the meaning of ‘belonging’. Jernryd is interested in renegotiating the boundaries between inside and outside, inclusion and exclusion as well as ‘I’ and ‘you’. By repositioning herself/ the subject/ the viewer, she opens up for a movement between these positions.
