Lior Nønne Malue Hansen
Skördefest & Miljödagar 2022
26 august – 28 august 2022
During this year’s edition of Skördefest & Miljödagar (Harvest & Environment Festival) in Boden, artist Lior Nønne Malue Hansen created an installation of recycled materials.
Recycling can give forgotten and discarded objects a new life. It can suddenly appear exciting, beautiful, or even seem to hold untold possibilities by re-evaluating and reworking something old or broken. This transformation occurs through the work of the mind and the hand. It raises questions about the properties of an object or material and how its function can change over time. In a broader sense it also relates to human abilities, function, and behavior.
As raw materials become increasingly scarce and the piles of ‘unfit’ objects grow, it is necessary to make room for new ways of thinking and working that use what already exists. Based on these questions, Lior Nønne Malue Hansen will spend a few days building an installation of recycled materials in Havremagasinet’s tent.
Lior will be present during the workshop on 27 August and on Friday 26th of August, when she will be building the installation. A series of open workshop with the artist and Havremagasinets art educator also took place on the site. The proposed workshops focused on recycling.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lior Nønne Malue Hansen (1989, Århus) is based in Stockholm and trained at the Royal College of Art in Stockholm and Århus Kunstskole. She often takes social structures and problems as a starting point for her work, dwelling on issues of ecology, politics and the intertwining of the social and the psychological.
She works with site-specific installations created from recycled materials that she collects, adapts and transforms. Texts and titles form an essential part of many of her works, reinforcing the poetic quality of the materials and objects she uses. Hansen opened her first solo exhibition at Nässjö Konsthall in 2020 and has participated in several group exhibitions, including Solen formar berget at Aguélimuséet in Sala, Ekotop at Gävle Konstcentrum, Survival of the fittest at Accelerator Stockholm and Hydrotop Gnesta Art Lab.
