Josefin Tingvall is a multidisciplinary artist; her practice is based on poetic inquiries into materials' dynamics, manipulation, and boundaries. She explores themes such as the environment, fragility, change, and humans' role in our self-constructed world. Tingvall holds a degree in craft and design from Linköping University, a Master's in Fine Arts from Konstfack's Craft program, and has studied as a visiting student at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. In September 2019,
she participated in a residency at the National Textile Center of Iceland. Received support from Längmanska Fonden and began developing her "Language of Loops" project. She participated in the Iaspis Konstnärsnämnden residency in Stockholm in the summer of 2020. Through mixing video sequences of indoor spaces, 3d landscaping and taught tactics of what to do when you are lost in an unknown terrain, the artwork I Haven't Moved at All is an immersive essay exploring interior and exterior feelings of being lost.
Many of us can recognise feeling lost in a familiar setting, such as a home or the movement we make every day. Yet, mental disorders such as depression or burnout is still met by stigma in society. Compared to the steps and guides on what to do when you are physically lost in an unknown terrain, the artwork explores the home as a landscape we both can recognise and wander lost in.
