Noemi Sjöberg (1978) is swedish, grown up in Paris (France) and currently lives and works in Barcelona (Spain). The alteration of reality, the human condition as time goes by and traveling are the axis of Noemi Sjöberg's work. She has worked in Japan, Iran, USA, Egypt, India, China and Mongolia. Far from exoticism, traveling is a mental state that allows her to face a foreign reality in which the senses are sharpened; a place from where to interrogate the environment and the presence of oneself; a limbo where the real and the unreal, the private and the public, the ordinary and the extraordinary are confused. Simplicity, depth and rigor characterize her work, as well as the balance between control and hazard. Both in her installations and videos she lets the viewer endorse the narrative part and be carried by streams of images and sounds, magnifiying the senses. With her photography she experiments with various mediums and techniques transforming the usual reading of still image that becomes for the observer a three-dimensional and physical experience.
