Lina Sofia Lundin
Lina Sofia Lundin is a textile artist and project leader. She investigates art processes in relation to material, knowledge and place. She is based on the countryside of Sweden where she cultivates natural fibers and dye plants. Often she is incorporating local skills from the community by including participants in activities around cultivating and crafting.
Residents involvement in city planning, dialogues about our public spaces and cross- disciplinary collaborations also capture her interest.
Lina Sofia has a BA degree in Textile Art from the Academy of Art and Craft in Gothenburg, Specialist Craft Tutor from Nyckelviksskolan and studied Ethnology at Stockholm University.
