Inka (*1985, Finland) and Niclas (* 1984, Sweden) Lindergard is an award-winning artist duo who work primarily with photography-based art.
They have worked together since 2007 and are based in Stockholm. With starting points in popular culture their work circulates around investigations on the photograph as a carrier of a mysterious image of nature.
Their imagery spans from the search engines and their algorithmic answers on what nature looks like, to an aesthetic appropriated from nature religions, occultism and spiritual postcards.
Their new series The Belt of Venus and the Shadow of the Earth revolve around performative photographic acts that can only be experienced through the photograph, an investigation into the act of taking a photograph and the camera’s role as a bridge between the physical world and the photographic.
This beautiful, large-format publication accompanies the exhibition, The Belt of Venus and the Shadow of the Earth at Grundemark Nilsson Gallery, Stockholm, 10 September – 29 October 2016.
