Åsa Cederqvist work with film, installation, sculpture and performance, in an interface between fiction – reality, haptic – conceptual, ambigious - rational. Åsa continue to build works with a specific personal mythology from the interest in therapeutical methods, behavioural science and collaborative processes. Her work moves between documentary field studies, staged live performances, physical interaction, which all aim to push the expectations of formats, aestetical hierarchies and modes of expression.

„Through the act of playing, and study of knowledge production, personal growth, behavioral science and the use of expectations and suspense, my on-going practice if set to manifest the importance of physical understanding and a non-rational and multi-layered communication. Inherent lies the investigation of everyday magic, meaning making, spatial drama and co-creative processes.“
