C.R.E.A.M. @Bildmuseet, Umeå (SE)
This year's exhibition by graduate students from the master's programme at the Academy of Fine Arts at Umeå University is entitled C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me). The title refers to a critical questioning of societal values and the possibilities to challenge their definition through artistic expression.
The exhibition presents works by Carolina Andreasson, Emil Carlsiö, Micaela Cignozzi, Laura Heuberger, Jenny Käll, Ariadna Mangrané, Frederico Sjöstrand de Oliveira and Alexander Skats. Their main tutor is artist Christoph Draeger, Professor at the Umeå Academy of Fine Arts.
C.R.E.A.M. is the culmination of five years of study in Fine Arts and displays a wide range of ideas. Based on their specific interests and personalities, the students have developed independent ways of working.
Laura Heuberger (b.1993) is a Swiss/Italian artist currently based in Umeå, Sweden. She studied New Technologies for the Arts and New media in Bologna, Milan and Tallinn during her BA. She is currently studying for her MA in Fine Arts in Umeå, Sweden. She is interested in themes surrounding cybernetics, logistics and human cognition, and produces works in digital form, occasionally complemented by an installation.
