Love Enqvist

Love Enqvist is a multi disciplinary Swedish visual artist. In his work, there is a concern with how we stand in relation to one to another, how relation is constantly in flux, determines community and how individuality is inextricably bound to relation, rather than alienation or separation. His projects draw upon the process of living and the condition of life. By questioning how we live and dwell, and reflecting upon that, the everyday appears transformed, so that what is reflected is the fragmented, mysterious and often imaginary nature of our being.
