Jonas Liveröd


Jonas Liveröd is a Swedish artist who currently lives and works in Hammenhög, Sweden and Berlin, Germany. The core of his work is concentrated on sculpture, drawing and installation, but wanders into woodcuts and collage, is at times materially unfaithful in areas such as textile, collected images, archival porcelain works and a range of other bastardized combinations. Beyond the limits of his artwork, he has in the past few years held workshops and lectures in myth construction, death culture and failure, curated themes in the borderlands of architecture, made a soundtrack for a book, written articles on human taxidermy and victorian escapism as well as interviewed both forgers and collectors. He occasionally opens the doors to his mobile museum - The Liveröd Wunderkammer where among other things the lion of rastafari prophet emperor Haile Selassie is included.
