Conny Karlsson holds an MFA in Fine Arts from Valand Academy of Fine Arts and currently he is based in New York and Stockholm, Sweden.
With the help of film, text and image the artist Conny Karlsson explores the boundaries between language and social, political and intimate identity. In different staged situations he finds it intriguing to see how these positions change, such as using material with personal content presented in a way that is more politically charged. He examines this concern with people or movements that have an activist approach, usually in a sphere related to social functions, sexual topics, and a radical political agenda. With an iconographic popular culture reference as a starting point his intention is to create a new perspective and meaning.
