Annsofie Jonsson

I am a Berlin-based Swedish artist and a member of the art collective, Studio Baustelle in Neukölln, Berlin since 2018. My work revolves mainly around expressive semi-abstract paintings, using collage technics, and mixed media as tools for expression and I often take inspiration from the hypnagogic state of mind. I studied fine art before obtaining my Master's degree in Education, in the field of Culture, Media, and  Aesthetics at the University of Malmö, Sweden. I collaborate and perform together with sound artist Håkan Jonsson under the name Hugsten.

Hörsägen by HUGSTEN at Studio Baustelle 2023

“Hearsay” can be used to characterize the myths and legends of oral traditions, folklore, as well as gossip and today’s fake news. Its uncertain veracity, transmitted through whispers in confidence, makes it a carrier of uncontrollable ideas, ideal for enhancing, contextualizing, and merging with other stories to maintain its power of virality and give it sustained longevity. 

But as we propagate these narratives we may ask ourselves why, and how they affect us: Do we tell stories or do the stories tell us?

In this exhibition, the works tell, twist, improve, and create hearsays by combining visual, aural, and tactile elements in performances, paintings, sculptures, and sound.

Urban Spirits - Mixed media drawings on paper

Urban Spirits 2022

The drawings derive from the artist's drifting practices in the cityscape of Berlin, taking inspiration from Guy Debord and the idea of total dissolution between art and life. The drawings are a form of collage, a mix of micro and macro perspectives, impressions filtered through the artist's membrane and created in a mixed media technic on paper. Exhibited in Los Angeles at Torrence Art Museum, as part of the B-LA Connect Art festival.

The exhibition showed contemporary occulture with artists from Berlin and Sweden, curated by Annsofie Jonsson at Studio Baustelle in Neukölln. The theme, Chthonic, focuses on what dwells in the underworld, whether it be in ourselves, below the earth, or otherwise hidden and the exhibition “Chthonic” applies both to the subjects of the artist's works as well as the subcultural and occultural currents from which they emerge.

This exhibition at Lofta Caffé in Sweden presented a series of acrylic paintings that took their inspiration from events in life that are in constant movement and change, the transitional age of menopause. The work is created with the help of the color ochre as a unifying aspect. Ochre is a color commonly associated with the earth element and fits the theme of the paintings, cyclical change, movement, and renewal.

This body of work also consists of a series of drawings called Initial because they are the results of the first exercises of the day, contact with the color and the material, a kind of creative exercise to start painting, they are initials, the first forms.
