This event has ended.

Klara Liden (Swedish, b. 1979) creates architectural interventions and installations by cannibalizing existing structures and materials, such as cardboard, corrugated metal, drywall, wood, and carpet remnants. In addition, the artist makes videos that challenge accepted codes of behavior. Brimming with physical intensity and ferocity, Liden performs illicit acts for the camera, from the methodical destruction of a bicycle to an eccentric dance on a crowded Stockholm commuter train. For Projects 89, the Berlin-based artist creates a site-specific installation in the Museum's Projects gallery.
