Cecilia Hillström Gallery (SE)

Cecilia Hillström Gallery was founded in 2012 in the gallery district at Hudiksvallsgatan in Stockholm. The gallery represents both well-established and emerging artists, working in a variety of media; painting, photography, sculpture, video or interdisciplinary projects. A focus on the artistic process, strong contextual ambitions and art’s inherent materiality is shared by all of the gallery’s represented artists.

Kristina Matousch (SE)

Using a broad range of different techniques, Kristina Matousch challenges the viewer by taking seemingly mundane items and transforming them into objects of desire, violence and force. Foregrounding intimacy and tactility across her work in sculpture, performance and painting, Matousch combines slick surfaces, sharp edges and perfectly cut-out openings with a subtle sense of bodiliness and mess. Her process is often physical, leaving traces of her performative actions in the forms of the objects she interacts with. By adding a violent intensity to everyday objects, Matousch’s work follows in the tradition of minimalism, yet transforms it to a distinctly personal means of expression.

Kristina Matousch (b. 1974, Kalmar; SE) holds an MFA from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm. Her work has been shown at Spritmuseum (SE), Yossi Milo Gallery (US), Trondheim kunstmuseum (NO), Kalmar konstmuseum (SE), Lunds konsthall (SE), Norrköpings Konstmuseum (SE) and Moderna Museet (SE). Recent solo exhibitions include Skissernas Museum (SE), Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art (SE), Fullersta Gård (SE), and Anne Mosseri-Marlio Galerie (CH). Her work is included in the permanent collections of Moderna Museet (SE), Malmö Konstmuseum (SE), Borås Konstmuseum (SE), Public Art Agency Sweden (SE) and Bonnier Art Collection (SE).
