Åsa Jungnelius, born in 1975 in Nacka, Sweden, is a Stockholm- and Månsamåla- based visual artist. She holds an MFA in Design and Craft from Konstfack, Stockholm, where she now also is a lecturer. Materials, which stand at the intersection of economy, society, and ecology, hold a central place in her practice. In her works, which spans from objects and interiors to monumental works, she explores relations between bodies and environment. In addition to many international solo and group shows she participated in, Åsa has been commissioned site-specific public artworks in Swedish cities, such as The Seashell for the Stockholm metro’s extension. She is represented in the most important Scandinavian museums, among which Nationalmuseum, Stockholm. She has worked as a curator and artistic director for major brands such as Kosta Boda and is a member of cultural juries and boards.
